CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Melting snow is causing minor flooding in parts of Laramie County in southeast Wyoming.

The flooding closed a 45-mile stretch of U.S. 85 between Cheyenne and LaGrange on Wednesday morning.

The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory for the county until 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

It says the flooding is caused by a combination of melting snow, more snowfall Tuesday night and frozen ground that doesn’t soak in the water.

Areas under the advisory include Cheyenne, Burns, Crystal Lake Reservoir, Pine Bluffs and F.E. Warren Air Force Base.
