''Those traveling on I-80 should be alert for blowing snow, slick roads and low visibility at times between Laramie and Rawlins especially between mile markers 240 and 290 this morning. Strong wind speeds over 50 mph will also be possible which will increase the blowover risk for lightweight/high profile vehicles.''
