A winter weather advisory was in effect until late Wednesday morning for the areas north and south of Jackson, including Yellowstone National Park.

High winds were blowing in the Cody area and in southeastern Wyoming.

Extreme winds, with gusts up to 80 mph, prevented the city of Casper from opening Hogadon Basin Ski area on Tuesday.
