The year 2020 continues to be eventful. Pandemic, murder hornets, asteroids, and now snow in June.
Even though we are nearly one-third of the way through June, Mother Nature doesn’t care about our calendar system.
It snowed on Sunday in western Wyoming and many parts of Wyoming will get more snow Monday night and into Tuesday morning, according to weather forecasters.
Wyoming meteorologist Don Day said the heaviest snow will occur (not surprisingly) near Laramie.
“It’s going to snow in Laramie tonight. It will snow on the summit between Laramie and Cheyenne. It will snow between Rawlins and Laramie — around Arlington and Elk Mountain,” Day said.
“I would not be surprised if we receive several inches of snow on I-80 between Laramie and Cheyenne,” he said. “Also expect snow throughout the southern mountains of Wyoming including the Sierra Madres, the Snowy Range, and the Laramie Range down to 7,000 feet.”
That’s not the only place it will snow. Western Wyoming will get hit again. The National Weather Service is predicting 1 to 3 inches of snow above 9,000 feet in western Wyoming and 2 to 4 inches above 9,000 feet in the Tetons.
Sublette County Emergency Management offered some hope.
“The high June sun angle will likely melt a lot of the snow on the road surfaces,” they posted.
