Season Change In The Air

September 19, 2013 Greater Yellowstone, State of Montana, State of Wyoming No Comments
Togwotee

In case you had your doubts, a change in the seasons is in the air in the Greater Yellowstone region – and in some cases, it’s on the ground as well.  An early snow storm temporarily closed the high elevations of Beartooth Highway yesterday. Traffic gates were closed at Long Lake Bridge in Wyoming, and at Vista Point south of Red Lodge, Montana. The scheduled season closure date for the Beartooth Highway is October 15th. Dunraven Pass in Yellowstone was also closed for a time by snow.  Meanwhile, yes that was snow on the upper elevations of the Tetons and there even was some teasing us on Togwotee Pass.  The National Weather Service says elevations above 10,000 feet could see significant snow next week, but the 90-day outlook shows a return to normal temperatures and normal precipitation levels.  Currently, unseasonably cool temperatures are dominating the area assuring us that indeed, summer has ended in northwestern Wyoming even if that doesn’t happen on the calendar until Sunday.
