CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — An early spring snowstorm brought heavy snow to areas of Wyoming on Friday.
The National Weather Service reports that up to 20 inches (50.8 centimeters) of snow had fallen Friday at Sinks Canyon near Lander and up to 12 inches (30.5 centimeters) was possible in the Rock Springs area.
The spring snowstorm caused slick driving condition in some areas although all major interstates remained open into Friday afternoon.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation closed a stretch of Wyoming 220 in the Muddy Gap area southwest of Casper because of winter conditions.
A number of other roads and highways in the southwest, central and eastern areas of the state are slick with snowfall.
