KUSA — A storm system that could bring up to 8 inches of snow to parts of Wyoming by early Tuesday morning is headed toward Colorado … but don’t get your hopes up (if you’re hoping that winter to make an early cameo in the Centennial State).
A Winter Weather Advisory (yes, even though it’s technically still summer) was issued for parts of Montana and Wyoming until 6 a.m. Tuesday.
This storm is expected to bring periods of wet snow to the northern and western mountains of Wyoming, with accumulations between four to eight inches above 9,000 feet.
One to three inches of snow are possible at lower elevations.
Snow was seen falling in Jackson, Wyoming on a webcam in the area.
In Montana, meanwhile, there was a healthy coating of snow in Glacier National Park.
And in Yellowstone, Old Faithful itself was surrounded by snow … even as people flocked to the national icon for summer vacation.
This storm is headed to Colorado, but don’t get your hopes up for snow … even in the mountains.
Temperatures will drop into the 70s on the Front Range on Tuesday, and since the storm will pass over the mountains during the warmest part of the day, there’s not much hope for snow.
But, it’s only August … so there’s plenty of storms likely to come.
