Special Olympians Face Cold Competitions

February 4, 2014 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
cold

Even as the 2014 Wyoming Special Olympics Winter Games get under way in Jackson Hole, temperatures here for the next few days will be colder than usual.  Warning Coordination Meteorologist Chris Jones says the trough of cold air that has been dominating the upper Midwestern states is moving west to Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, bringing with it some bitter temperatures.  Jones says the highs for the next few days will not be much over 10 degrees.  At that point, he urges the competitors to be sure they have multiple layers on so that they will stay warm.  He also says there will likely not be a lot of sunlight  which will lead to the conditions to feel colder.  He says, however, if the nights have cloud-cover , the area might keep temperatures up a little bit. Specifically, Jones says daytime highs are anticipated to remain in the single digits with as cold as 15-below possible overnight.

  • Shouldn’t my dogs be KEEPING their hair now? - November 21, 2014
    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her.
