Part of the allure of Jackson Hole is its extremes— extreme mountains, extreme sports … and even extreme weather. Like the locals who live here year-round, you’ll want to follow the weather trends closely to be prepared for each day in the mountains. Our high elevation, rugged terrain and relatively low humidity can create major fluctuations in temperature, precipitation and wind in a short period of time, potentially putting you at risk.
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. His audio forecast is great, too!
There are many ways to stay current with mountainweather.com’s features: from radar and satellite maps to webcams and a Yellowstone National Park weather page. You’ll find the seasonal info on the climate page especially helpful for planning your trip to Jackson Hole.
(Traveler Tip: Be prepared and check our packing for Jackson Hole summer, and packing for Jackson Hole winter lists before you come).
