Are we due for a white Christmas? Here's the forecast...

It's looking like there may be snow in the Wind River Basin on Christmas Day, according to the latest forecast from the National Weather Service office at Riverton Regional Airport. [image: 0.png] Here's the NWS weather synopsis for the rest of this week: A winter system is expected continue snow and gusty wind across the west. Heavy snow initiated Sunday across the west, and continued through Tuesday morning. Another round is possible on Wednesday. 1 to 2 feet of new snow has fallen over Teton county. Light to moderate snowfall will be found through Wednesday, especially over the western mountains and valleys. Additionally, we expect gusty wind to occur, which will create blowing and drifting snow with reduced visibilities, especially over the mountain passes. Main impact from this storm will be for those traveling across mountain passes and highways in the west. Snow, combined with strong winds, could bring slick roads and reduced visibilites at times. Snow will spread into portions of the Interstate 80 corridor through Wednesday, perhaps impacting travel. Those with outdoor plans should prepare for the return of winter conditions. Anyone with back country activities should also keep up to date on the latest avalanche conditions and forecasts, as fresh snow on a weak base could elevate the chances for avalaches. How does Christmas look? Light snow could linger on Thursday across the west and south. There is then a chance for snow, and a white Christmas, on Christmas Day, especially across southern and central Wyoming. #county10 #news #weather
