Being the 2nd day of winter it would seem appropriate to be seeing winter weather to contend with as you step outside this Monday.  Slick road conditions are to be seen through your morning with rain/snow mix possible statewide into the afternoon as temperatures boost into a range of 20's and 30's.  Casper can expect a daytime high around 34 degrees before conditions cool into the later afternoon and evening back below freezing making some light snowfall again possible.

TONIGHT:  Cold lows bottoming out in the single digits, teens and twenties amid continued scattered snow showers into the early evening.  Snow will begin to taper off in Casper after 11pm but not before resulting in slick and snowy roadways to keep in mind before you head out this evening and tomorrow morning.

TUESDAY:  A break in the winter weather will make for much more favorable travel conditions especially as temperatures boost into the afternoon.  Highs will stay close to their seasonal averages primarily in the 30's under mostly sunny and dry skies.  Winds will be strong beginning tonight and lasting through much of Tuesday so factor in that strong Wyoming wind when stepping outside.

LOOKING AHEAD: Get that holiday travel done Tuesday and Wednesday as these days will be among the driest of the forecast before Christmas.  Into Christmas Eve on Wednesday night wintry precipitation will work it's way back into the forecast with Christmas day temperatures falling to highs in the 20's and 30's amid likely accumulating snowfall.  This will be great news for those of you who want a white Christmas!  But... not such good news for those of you with plans to take to the roads for the holiday.

Travel safe these next few days everyone and enjoy the cozy winter weather!
