14/230AM: Greetings! Winter Weather Advisories have been expanded in area and time this morning. The I-80 Corridor near Arlington/Elk Mountain (mile markers 290-320) and the eastern foothills of the south Laramie Range have been added to the winter weather advisories through 6AM Saturday. We may need to further expand the advisories to cover Saratoga, Laramie and Cheyenne later today depending on how this storm system develops. Given the snow is mostly going to fall during the daylight hours, accumulations on road surfaces may not be too bad. We decided to hold off on including these three areas for right now. Stay tuned!
