CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A winter storm dumped up to a foot of snow in parts of central, east-central and southern Wyoming, closings highways and schools.

The National Weather Service has posted a winter storm warning for areas that include Cheyenne, Casper, Laramie, Riverton, Rock Springs and Sheridan. A blizzard warning was posted for parts of south-central Wyoming, including Rawlins.
