Winter weather conditions with snow and strong winds will make Thanksgiving travel difficult.  Most of the snow will fall in central Wyoming, Fremont County could see around 8 inches. 

But Riverton based National Weather Service Meteorologist Paul Skrbac says snow statewide will make driving a challenge.           

“Well with all the snow and the wind that’s gonna effect significant portions of the area, roads obviously will be snow covered and slick with extreme reduced visibility at times both with the snow falling and the wind blowing it around.”
 
Skrbac says waiting to drive until the morning won’t make a lot of difference.  The Wyoming Department of Transportation urges drivers to check road conditions before they head out and to bring an emergency kit that includes, food, water and blankets.
