Instead of relying on the default weather app on your smartphone, we recommend using our local resource, mountainweather.com/forecast. Every morning during the winter and summer seasons, Jackson Hole meteorologist Jim Woodmencey interprets the local weather patterns to create a forecast, offering an informed sense of what to expect so you can plan and dress accordingly.
We lovingly pair this weekly Jackson Hole Weather guide with a few favorite Jackson Hole Calendar of Events going on this week to make your planning a breeze.
DON'T MISS: The famous ElkFest and Antler Auction this Saturday, May 21st and the High Noon Chili Cookoff on Sunday, plus a free concert by local band Strumbucket on Town Square, also on Sunday.
FREE: Wyoming Stargazing offers free, year-round, public stargazing events every (clear sky) Thursday, starting approximately one hour after sunset when the temperature is above zero degrees Fahrenheit. The location is in the northwest corner of the Stilson parking lot off Hwy. 390 and 22. Astronomy educators use one of their large aperture telescopes to show you planets, stars, planetary nebulae, galaxies, and more. There is no need to reserve your spot in advance; just come and go as you please.
