ST LOUIS (LALATE) – A Wyoming tornado warning 2013 today is growing in the southeast. The National Weather Service confirms that no Wyoming tornado has yet to be spotted by radar. But after a series of Wyoming tornado warnings and watches expired earlier today June 22, 2013 a new warning has been issued moments ago.
The National Weather Service in Cheyenne tells news that “at 350 PM MDT a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located 12 miles southwest of Veteran”. The system was not moving that fast, but heading east at 20 mph.
Officials are warning residents that a tornado could develop. So a warning remains in place for southern Goshen County in southeast Wyoming until 4:30 PM MDT, officials tell news. Several cities are of concerns tonight. They include Yoder, Hawk Springs, Hawk Springs Recreation Area and Hawk Springs campground, reps tell news.
Tornado warnings in Wyoming have been continuing for hours. Earlier today Natrona County was on warning until 1:15 PM. Then Platte County, Converse County, and Crook County prompted warnings as well. But officials have now downgraded several counties to only “watch” status tonight. They include Albany, Campbell, Converse, Crook, Laramie, Niobrara, Platte and Weston currently as of 6 pm EST. The NWS is advising residents to remain alert with continuing warnings and watches potentially changing.
