Up to 2 feet of snow possible in the mountains of Wyoming, USA

Snow Alert

A potent spring snowstorm threatened to snarl traffic on interstate highways from Colorado to South Dakota, including a stretch of Interstate 80 across southern Wyoming that was the scene of two big weather-related pileups last month.
After a week of soggy weather in the central Rockies, forecasters predicted rain would transition to heavy snow by Mother’s Day. Up to 2 feet was forecast in the mountains of Wyoming and Colorado, and more than 1 foot was possible in the Black Hills.
Nine to 13 inches was forecast for Casper Mountain; 6 to 12 inches was forecast for high-elevation cities including Cheyenne.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation was monitoring the storm and preparing its plows but not making any plans to close interstates just yet, spokesman Dave Kingham said Friday.
“More often than not, it’s a question of visibility than any amount of snow. Or a combination of poor visibility and ice and poor conditions,” Kingham said of what it takes to close a highway.
The storm could affect travel along I-80 and I-25 in Wyoming, I-70 in Colorado and I-90 in northeast Wyoming and western South Dakota.
Slick conditions and poor visibility factored into two recent pileups on I-80.
On April 20, a fiery chain-reaction wreck 18 miles west of Laramie on I-80 involved more than 60 vehicles and killed two people. The wrecks happened in dense fog and light slush and shut down I-80 for 100 miles in both directions.
The pileup happened four days after one involving about 60 cars and trucks on I-80 about 15 miles west of Cheyenne. Three people were hospitalized from those wrecks in blowing snow.
Forecasters this time predicted a classic upslope storm in which moisture funneled westward from the Great Plains would fall first as rain, then snow, on east-facing slopes.
Some rain will turn to snow at high elevations overnight Friday but most areas will see rain changing to snow Saturday afternoon and evening, said Richard Emanuel, a Weather Service forecaster in Cheyenne.
“Conditions will probably be pretty nasty out there tomorrow night into early Sunday,” Emanuel said Friday.
The storm could drop more than 1 inch of liquid precipitation to some areas, he said.

Severe snowstorm forces Obama to order a disaster declaration for Buffalo, USA

Disaster Alert

President Obama on Monday signed a disaster declaration ordering that federal aid be provided to assist in the recovery efforts of several counties across the state affected by the severe winter storm and flooding late last month.
The counties include Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Jefferson, Lewis, Orleans, St. Lawrence and Wyoming. Fourteen people were reported to have died during the storm, most due to cardiac-related complications due to shoveling heavy snow.
Federal funding will be available to state, tribal, and eligible local governments for any work, repairs, and replacements needed from the storm, Gannett’s Denise Nickerson reports.
FEMA said additional designations might be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.​ Initial reports indicated more than $49 million in damages.
“This much needed assistance will help communities still recovering from last month’s extreme snowfall and ensure that they are prepared for the upcoming winter months,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement.
“In the face of this severe weather, New Yorkers from every corner of the state came together to help their neighbors in western New York and the North Country in their time of need. I thank FEMA for recognizing the severity of this storm and for approving our request for aid.”
On Nov. 18, Cuomo declared a state of emergency and dispatched 150 National Guard soldiers and airmen to western New York to respond to the more than four feet of snow dumped on parts of Buffalo’s southern towns.
By Thanksgiving, more than 70 inches of snow had accumulated on some parts of the Buffalo area, and more than 100 cars were temporarily stranded on Interstate 90. As a result, several roads were closed in the western parts of the state including Route 219 between I-90 and Route 39, and Route 400 between Union Road and Route 16.
At least 30 large roofs collapsed because of the storm, most involving farm and flat-roof buildings.
The federal Small Business Administration disaster loans have been made available in Erie County and Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Genesee and Wyoming counties.
Loans up to $200,000 may be available to homeowners to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate, with up to $2 million available for businesses.
