Heavy Snow Ending for N. Rockies

29 Jan 2023, 8:30 pm

NORTHERN ROCKIES – Heavy snow started falling Friday and kept falling Saturday, producing totals of more than two feet!

Winter weather alerts continue into Monday morning for parts of Idaho and Wyoming and into the afternoon for northern Colorado. Gusty winds could create blowing snow and reduce visibility on roads. Use extra caution if you’ll be traveling in this region.

Snow will end from north to south but it will be very cold. Highs will only reach the single digits for parts of Wyoming and the teens and 20s for the rest of the Rockies. The Pacific Coast will only have a glancing blow of the cold with most locations running about 10° below average. Temperatures will be on the rise into the middle of the week, getting back closer to average for this time of year by Wednesday.
