CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Interstate 80 in Wyoming has been reopened many roads and highways are slick following a snowstorm that dumped up to 32 inches of snow in some areas.

Much of I-80 and between Cheyenne and Rawlins and I-25 between Cheyenne and Casper were closed Tuesday and early Wednesday because of the storm.

Big drifts and strong winds hampered the efforts of road crews in reopening some stretches.

Most schools that closed on Tuesday reopened but some rural schools either remained closed Wednesday or had delayed start times.

The National Weather Service says most of the state received measurable snowfall.

Casper received about a foot, Cheyenne and Pine Bluffs both got around 7 inches and Jackson 6 inches.

Mountain areas received more snow with Casper Mountain in Natrona County reporting 32 inches.
