this hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central

central wyoming.

.day one...tonight

isolated rain or snow showers will continue across the area this
evening. Some of these showers may be briefly intense and produce
snow pellets or graupel.

The coldest temperatures so far this season should be expected
overnight. Some locations...including billings...have not seen a
freeze yet this fall and forecast low temperatures are expected in
the mid 20s. Persons should use caution when traveling tonight as
bridges and overpasses may become icy.

.days two through seven...wednesday through monday

no hazardous weather is expected at this time.


EDIT - Had to go look up graupel

Graupel (also called soft hail or snow pellets; METAR code: GS)[1] refers to precipitation that forms when supercooled droplets of water are collected and freeze on a falling snowflake, forming a 2–5 mm ball of rime. The term graupel is the German word for this meteorological phenomenon.[2] Graupel is sometimes referred to as small hail, although the World Meteorological Organization defines small hail as snow pellets encapsulated by ice, a precipitation halfway between graupel and hail

Also, formatting suggestion -- in the first post, next time it gets done, maybe put the state names in big bold print so it's easier to find the section with your state!

Windchill chart here in all its glory is a Good Idea!
