First snow of season arrives in southeastern Wyoming

Oct 5, 2012 - The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- Parts of southeastern Wyoming are getting their first snowfall of the season.

Light snow was falling in Douglas and Torrington on Friday morning following the arrival of a cold front.

Two stronger, colder systems moving in on its heels are also expected to bring some snow to Casper, Riverton, Cheyenne and elsewhere later in the day and Saturday. Up to 4 inches of snow could fall in the Cheyenne area along Interstate 80 with higher amounts in the mountains.

Temperatures could drop into the teens in some areas Friday night.
