CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Another spring snowstorm is marching through Wyoming, dropping heavy snow and ushering in cold temperatures.

Snow spread across much of the state on Thursday and was expected to continue through Friday before exiting the state.

Major highways remained open Thursday but U.S. 16 between Buffalo and Worland over the Bighorn Mountains was closed because of the weather and a weather related accident.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of the eastern half of Wyoming, including the Casper, Sheridan, Buffalo and Douglas areas where up to 9 inches is possible.

Winter weather advisories have been issued for areas that include Yellowstone National Park, Cody, Worland, Riverton, Lander and Rawlins. Many mountain areas are likely to see a foot or more of snow.
