CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A slow moving winter storm is dumping heavy snow in parts of western Wyoming ahead of bitter cold temperatures descending on the entire state.

The National Weather Service has posted a winter storm warning for much of western and parts of northern Wyoming through Friday.

Up to 3 feet of snow is possible in the mountains in the Jackson Hole region with 8 to 16 inches possible in the lower valley areas, including Jackson.

A winter storm watch is posted for a large area of central and eastern Wyoming, including Casper, Gillette, Worland, Douglas, Riverton and Lusk.

The snow precedes an Arctic front that will usher in bitter cold temperatures across the state this weekend. Many areas will see nighttime temperatures dip well below zero.
