As the 10 biblical plagues continue to curse Wyoming and the rest of the world, a portion of the state will see another favorite friend: snow.
The National Weather Service in Riverton has issued a hazardous weather outlook for a major chunk of the state, from Yellowstone National Park to Rock Springs, which called for possible snowfall Sunday night.
A strong cold front is expected to bring cooler air to the region, turning the potential rain into snow in the northern mountains Sunday night into Monday morning.
This will result in some “light” snowfall accumulations, as if 2020 hadn’t already been inconvenient enough.
The other hazards the NWS office warned about were critical fire conditions and thunderstorms this weekend.
To be fair, hail was actually one of the 10 plagues, not snow, so we should be fine. Right?
