Episode Narrative A strong Pacific storm brought cold air and abundant moisture to the area. A long duration upslope flow created favorable conditions for heavy snow. This storm produced dangerous winter storm conditions over a wide area of southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska. Interstates 80 and 25, as well as many state and local highways, were closed for significant periods of time causing problems for travelers and commerce. Law enforcement reported many accidents. There were many reports of snowfall in excess of 20 inches. As the snowfall was winding down, strong northerly winds were observed creating additional issues with blowing and drifting snow. Reports came in of drifts in the 4 to 6 feet range.
Event Narrative Law enforcement reported 12 inches of snow in Chadron at 7 pm.
