... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from midnight tonight to
6 PM MDT Sunday...

The National Weather Service in Riverton has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for snow... which is in effect from midnight
tonight to 6 PM MDT Sunday.

Periods of snow will develop over northern portions of the
Big Horn Mountains above about 8000 feet late this evening. The snow
will continue to develop southward through the night as cold air
moves in from the north and snow levels drop to about 7000 feet by
early Sunday morning. Total accumulations of 6 to 10 inches is
expected above 8000 feet by Sunday afternoon with locally higher
amounts of up to one foot are possible above 8000 feet along north
facing slopes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow
will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow
covered roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while
driving. The snowfall is expected to impact travelers through the
higher passes... including Powder River and Granite passes. Campers and
hikers at elevations above about 7500 feet are also cautioned.

Y'know...I had a race this weekend, and I found it kinda ironic that I was wearing a snowmobiling jacket in June.

Friday had me out on the wheeler in 40*F weather with 30 MPH winds and no sun. That is popsicle weather. Ish.

Public Information Statement
Statement as of 6:45 PM MDT on June 7, 2009



A vigorous... cold storm system swept through the cowboy state
Saturday night and Sunday. This system produced widespread
precipitation across the region. There was plenty of cold air
for significant snowfall across the northwest and northern
mountains... including Yellowstone National Park. Snowfall totals
generally ranged between 5 and 10 inches.
There was even enough
cold air for the lower elevations of the Big Horn basin to receive
snow. Snow was recorded in Greybull and Worland... but the bulk
of the snow in the Big Horn basin was across the Cody foothills
and extreme northern Big Horn County... where one to three inches
of snow fell. Accumulations in the lower elevations were mainly in
the grassy areas. Trace amounts of snow was also recorded in
Buffalo... Riverton... and in Lander.

Daytime temperatures were extremely cold for this time of year...
especially east of The Divide. Daytime highs on Sunday were
generally 30 to 35 degrees below average east of The Divide... and
about 10 to 20 degrees below average west of The Divide. Normal
highs for early June are generally in the 70s across the area.
