Strong winds hamper travel in SE Wyo.

Cheyenne, WYo. – Weather conditions have improved in southeast Wyoming although gusty winds continue to hamper travelers with blowing snow.

The National Weather Service says winds have slowly died down and conditions will continue to improve. For much of the day Wednesday, long stretches of Interstates 80
and 25 as well as other highways in the area were closed because of blowing snow and poor visibility from winds gusting up to 60 mph.

Both interstate routes were opened Wednesday afternoon.

Some schools called off or delayed classes Wednesday because of the weather.
