Here is the Monday morning update, issued November 16, on the winter storm which will affect southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska today through Tuesday:

Winter Weather Advisories has been issued for much of southeast Wyoming outside the Sierra Madres, Snowy Range, Arlington and Southern Laramie Range.Foothills for Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning. Winter Storm Warnings are in effect from this afternoon through Tuesday afternoon for the I-80 corridor from Arlington to Laramie to Cheyenne to Sidney, as well as Banner and Morrill counties in western Nebraska due to the combination of snow and blowing snow.

Total snow accumulations Monday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon will range from 1 to 4 inches over east central Wyoming into the northern Nebraska Panhandle, 3 to 8 inches Arlington/Elk Mountain east through I-80 Summit, and 3 to 6 east through Cheyenne to Sidney. 6 to 12 inches are forecast for the Snowy and Sierra Madres.

The greatest impacts to travel will occur between Arlington and the I-80 Summit where the snow is expected to develop this afternoon and continue through the evening. Winds will shift to the north following a cold frontal passage this afternoon, and increase to 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 50 mph this evening which will significantly reduce visibilities in blowing snow. Near-blizzard conditions may develop tonight and Tuesday morning from the southeast corner of Wyoming into the southern Nebraska Panhandle. The snow will taper off from west to east Tuesday, however strong and gusty north winds will continue to produce dangerous travel conditions with blowing and drifting snow.
