Typical Weather by Season

Spring (March-May): Expect all four season during this time frame. Packing for fishing trips in this time frame tends to require clothes for all types of weather from snow, rain, sun and wind. Sometimes all in one day.

Summer (June-August): In the higher altitudes of our region and Dubois you can expect all four seasons in June. As July emerges through August, the weather is beautiful with warm-hot summer days and cool nights. Afternoon thunderstorms can and do roll through. In the Bighorn and Green River Basins the days can be very hot. Trips can be adjusted according to the weather during high heat days.

Fall (September-November): Early fall is probably one of the best times for beautiful weather across Wyoming. Cooler temperatures set in and the dog days of summer have disappeared. As fall progresses weather can be tricky and winter can and does show itself. Be prepared for all types of weather in October-November including snow.
