CHEYENNE, Wyoming — A late summer snowstorm dropped up to 20 inches of snow in parts of Wyoming.

The rare September snow on Wednesday and Thursday caused damage to trees and power outages in some areas of northern Wyoming.

While the heaviest snow fell in the Bighorn Mountains, the town of Buffalo received as much as 10 inches.

The 3 to 5 inches that fell in Cody is the earliest recorded snowfall there since records were kept in 1915. The previous recorded earliest snowfall in Cody was Sept. 12, 1970.

Other snowfall totals included 4 inches at Casper Mountain and 3 to 5 inches at Meeteetsee.

Some roads and highways had slick spots Friday morning, but otherwise travel around the state was not hampered.
