After a slow start to the season, Laramie seems to be getting its fair share of wintry weather in the month of February. This coming week is no exception with more snow and wind expected as we head into the middle of this week. The current weather forecast is calling for an 80% chance of three to seven inches of fresh snow by Tuesday evening for the Laramie area. Expect steady snowfall to start Monday night around midnight and continue through mid-day tomorrow, with isolated snow showers continuing into the afternoon.

Dissipating snow showers on Tuesday will give way to gusty winds yet again, although thankfully not as strong as we saw this past weekend. Gusts could however reach up to 60 MPH at times. If the forecast is correct, it is likely that more road closures are to come due to blowing snow as Wednesday is predicted to be another windy day in Laramie.
