Preliminary December 17 Snowfall Totals

Riverton Forecast Office has compiled a list of snowfall reports for the storm that moved across western Wyoming on Monday December 17 2012.  Some of these reports were made earlier in the day and do not represent the storm totals.

December 17 - Preliminary Snowfall Totals Across Western Wyoming

A potent winter storm moved into western Wyoming early Monday and produced snowfall across a wide swath of the region into early Monday evening.  The heaviest snow fell in the Salt and Wyoming ranges where automated stations provided estimates of one to two feet.  The Teton Range and southern Yellowstone National Park generally received between 12 and 18 inches of fresh snow.
In addition to the snow, strong, gusty wind was noted on both sides of the Continental Divide Monday.  Wind speeds in the mountains were routinely measured at 30 to 50 mph with higher gusts between 70 and 80 mph at the height of the storm Monday morning.  An automated observing station at the Casper airport registered a 59 mph gust at 12:39 p.m., while a top speed of 58 mph was measured at the Rock Springs airport at 3:05 p.m.  Strong wind gusts were also measured in southeast Fremont and southwest Natrona counties, where gusts ranging from 58 to 72 mph were recorded Monday morning.
Following are the 24-hour snowfall totals ending at 7 p.m. MST on Monday.  The table is delineated by county.  Thank you to our spotters who called, emailed, and posted on Facebook to assist us by providing snowfall reports.
