Global warming? Climate change? The fact is it’s been warm since T-Day

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Has it been unseasonably warm lately? You bet. Over the long holiday weekend, beginning with Thanksgiving Day, Jackson has tripped record high temps four out of the five days leading up to today.

On Thursday, November 23, the official thermometer reading at the Jackson Hole Airport registered 55 degrees for a high. And you thought the turkey was the only thing basting.

We did it again on Friday, November 24 with a record high 51 degrees. Saturday was a disappointment. Jackson fell two degrees shy of the record 50 set in 1960. But on Sunday, we obliterated the record high with a sweltering 60-degree high mark—reached in the 2 o’clock hour.  The average high for that day is 30 degrees.

Monday, November 27 was also a record high temperature in Jackson with 48. We won’t break any records today, however. At least not when it comes to high temperature readings. With a forecasted high in the mid-30s today, we likely won’t reach the record 46 degrees set this day in 2014.

Next chance of breaking a high temp record might be Saturday, December 2 when the forecast calls for a high around 42. The hottest December 2 on record was 1973’s 45 degrees.
