CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A snowstorm dumped heavy snow and slickened roads and highways in Wyoming.

The National Weather Service put parts of southeast Wyoming, including Cheyenne, under a winter storm warning Thursday night. The storm was expected to subside Friday morning.

Initial snowfall estimates released by the Weather Service had near 3 feet of new snow falling in areas of the Sierra Madre Range in Carbon County. Parts of the Snowy Range in Albany County may have received more than 2 feet.

More than a foot of snow fell in the mountains of northwest Wyoming.

Major highways remained open in the state although no travel was advised on U.S. 85 north of Cheyenne and on Wyoming 77 in the Shirley Basin.
