GILLETTE, Wyo. — A winter storm that could dump as much as eight additional inches of snow along Interstate 90 and northern Campbell County on Wednesday didn’t deter residents from getting out and about this morning.

A Blizzard Warning issued on Dec. 13 remains in effect, according to the National Weather Service in Rapid City, South Dakota, with an inch or four of additional snow forecast for southern Campbell County and up to eight inches along and north of I-90.

The storm resulted in both the City of Gillette and Campbell County issuing Level II snow emergency declarations discouraging non-emergency travel with the area seeing around five inches of snowfall so far and strong winds as of Dec. 14.
