Are there blizzards in Wyoming?

Blizzards are relatively common across the entire state, and can drop very heavy snowfall through the mountains and up toward the Black Hills in the northeast. Elsewhere it is not so much the amount of snow, but the strong winds that can really create dangerous conditions. Furthermore, due to its continental location, cold air outbreaks can cause blizzards as early as October and as late as April...sometimes even early May. Snow tends to be a little heavier in the Spring as more moisture is available out of the Gulf of Mexico.
