Look For A “Normal Winter” This This Year

As the National Weather Service’s Riverton Office prepares to mark Winter Awareness Day later this week, an early winter storm caught more than a few residents and visitors flatfooted last week.  “Is that a harbinger of things to come?” we asked Warning Coordination Meteorologist Chris Jones.  Jones says the Weather Service Climate Prediction Center has posted an outlook trending more toward a climatologically normal winter with respect to temperatures.  Jones says there are “no real strong ties right now to el Niño or la Niña, however they do kind of indicate across northwest Wyoming, at least through mid-winter, that there could be a better than average chance of seeing some more snow than we’re used to seeing.”  Jones says moreover, an updated long-range forecast for the winter is to come out October 17th. Still, Jones says now is as good a time as any to provision one’s home and car to be prepared to weather any potential weather emergency.

    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]

  • Warmer Temperatures With Isolated Thunderstorms Expected Today - August 29, 2014
