Forecasters with the Cheyenne office of the National Weather Service are warning about a possible winter storm on Wednesday which could dump 8-12 inches of snow in some areas of southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle.

The service posted this statement on its website on Monday:

''Wintry weather looks to make a return to the region Wednesday through Wednesday night with rain changing to snow Wednesday as temperatures get colder.
