NWS: Cheyenne winter weather to slowly dissipate


Cheyenne, Wyo. — The winter weather looks to remain for a short time in southeast Wyoming.

As of May 2, the National Weather Service (NWS) in Cheyenne has instated a Winter Weather Advisory, which will remain in effect until 3 p.m. This applies to the far portions of southeast Wyoming and the southern Nebraska Panhandle. 

In this area, total expected snow accumulations are forecast at 2–4 inches, with some areas possibly getting 6 inches and the snow expected to gather on grassy areas. There is, however, the possibility that the snow will accumulate on roadways as well.

The weather will taper off through the day, turning to light flurries through the early afternoon before coming to an end in the Nebraska Panhandle by late afternoon, the NWS in Cheyenne stated.   


Drivers are advised to use caution when traveling in the late afternoon and evening in both southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle. 

At this time, there is a possibility of rain and snow expected from Tuesday night into Wednesday. Use caution when traveling these days, meteorologists advised.
