Much of northeast Wyoming could get socked with a blast of winter this week as the National Weather Service in Billings expects a fall storm to move into the area either late Wednesday evening or early Thursday. Meteorologist Kurt Hooley says it's too soon to determine exactly when the storm will hit or the impact that it may have, however, he said that rain on Thursday in Sheridan is expected to turn to heavy wet snow.
Hooley said that Sheridan could receive anywhere from 6 to 12 inches between Thursday and Friday afternoon. He indicated that snowfall in the Bighorn Mountains could be up to 18 inches in some areas. He added that this storm has the potential to affect most of the state sometime Thursday into Friday.
