DEAN: ADVISORIES IN EFFECT FOR PARTS OF WYOMING

From KTWO Chief Meteorologist Erik Dean and the KTWO LYNX HD Weather Team:

Parts of the Cowboy State are under some type of Advisory as we roll into the week. Details will be below the Map.


A Freeze Warning is in effect for portions of Sweetwater County. The Freeze Warning starts @ Midnight tonight, and lasts until 9:00 AM.

A Freeze Watch will be in effect for the Cody Foothills, Southeast Big Horn Basin, Southwest Big Horn Basin, Lander Foothills, Wind River Basin, as well as the Lower Elevations of Natrona County, and Johnson County. This starts Thursday @ Midnight, and goes until 9:00 AM Thursday Morning.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Tetons & Gros Ventre Mountains until 6:00 AM.

A Frost Advisory is in effect starting at 3:00 AM for Central, and East Laramie County until 9:00 AM.

THE DETAILS: Showers moved along the Northern Mountains this morning, with snow in the higher elevations of Yellowstone, and the Absaroka Mountains, which had more snow than the remainder of the Western Mountain Ranges. The area of Low Pressure, which brought us the rain and heavy wind yesterday, will continue to move Northeast. As the system moves further eastward, we will be on the back end of it meaning cooler temps, and more snow. As the developing wave digs south, it will pick up 
moisture from a system coming inland over the Pacific Northwest to create another opportunity for showers over western Wyoming on Wednesday afternoon. The axis of the wave will move across Wyoming late Wednesday and into Thursday, though limited moisture will leave a fairly quiet overnight period for the forecast area. By Thursday afternoon, another surge of moisture will ride along the flow to bring shower activity across the area. Cooler temperatures are also anticipated as the wave pulls some cooler Canadian air across the area. Overall, the cool and moist pattern will continue, with showers looking to weaken Thursday night.
