(Wyo.)-Snowstorm Moves Out Of State, Leaves Behind Cold
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A snowstorm has moved out of most of Wyoming but unseasonably cold temperatures and snow drifts up to 6 feet deep remain behind.
Some snow continues to fall in the extreme northeast corner of the state in the Sundance area.
The rest of the state can begin digging out. The National Weather Service says 28 inches of snow fell in the Lander area with the town receiving 14 to 27 inches.
Up to 20 inches fell in eastern Wyoming, including Lusk and Torrington.
Five- to 6-foot drifts have been found in Converse County.
Cold temperatures remain behind with many areas of the state expected to get into only the 20s Wednesday. The far western part of the state will warm up first with temperatures reaching into the 40s.
