CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Road conditions are slick Tuesday morning in and out of Cheyenne as a winter weather advisory has dumped snowfall on the city.

A 40% chance of snow before noon, followed by flurries between noon at 2 p.m., will affect the city Tuesday as the winter weather advisory instituted late Monday by the National Weather Service (NWS) in Cheyenne is in effect until 5 p.m. Patchy fog could be in the mix before 9 a.m., as well, as a north wind of 10 to 20 mph will pelt the Cheyenne area throughout the day.

All roads as of Tuesday morning leading directly in and out of Cheyenne are at least ruled as “slick” by the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT). That also includes portions of Interstate 25 from the Nebraska state line to Laramie and westbound, as well as the entirety of I-25 as of 7:50 a.m. Tuesday.
