April 5, 2010
The National Weather Service in Riverton has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for snow, which is in effect until 6AM Tuesday, April 6, for the Upper Green River Basin and South Lincoln County, including the towns of Pinedale, Big Piney, LaBarge, Farson, Kemmerer, Cokeville, Jackson, as well as the Gros Ventre and Wind River Mountains.
Light snow has begun across the area early Monday morning and will become steadier by mid morning. South to southeast winds will enhance snowfall Monday in the Upper Green River basin north of Big Piney and in the Upper Green River foothills.
A cold front will cross the area late Monday evening and will be accompanied by brief moderate to heavy snowfall. Snow will continue later Monday night and taper off around dawn.
Storm total accumulations of 3 to 6 inches are expected across most of the area. Lighter snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are expected in the southern Green River Basin. Higher accumulations of 6 to 9 inches will be possible in the northwestern Upper Green River foothills, including Bondurant.
Roads will be wet and slushy in spots and then become snow covered Monday evening and night. Travel could become hazardous after sunset.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow and blowing snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
