CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Eager skiers and snowboarders and Wyoming may have to wait a year for an extra-thick blanket of powdery snow as El Nino is expected to bring a drier and warmer winter to the northwest.

National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Jones tells the Casper Star-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1kRpRJI ) that El Nino is expected to bring above normal precipitation and below normal temperatures to the southwestern United States, but the northwest part, which includes most of Wyoming, should see a mild winter.

Jones says Wyoming’s northwest corner will still receive snow, just not as much as other years. In Wyoming’s southeast corner, El Nino should bring more precipitation, with storms already hitting Cheyenne and Laramie.
