Jackson Hole Weather Tuesday August 11, 2020, 12 hours ago
Sunny and dry conditions will prevail again on Tuesday, but fire danger will be on the increase this afternoon as gusty southwest winds develop while relative humidity values drop to critical levels. Highs will reach the low to mid 80s after a chilly start to the morning.
A disturbance will arrive from the west on Wednesday, leading to a more active day of weather than we’ve seen recently. An early round of showers (and perhaps a thunderstorm) will be possible in the morning before a better chance of thunderstorms arrives in the afternoon.
Rain amounts will be on the light side with Wednesday’s storms, generally be under a tenth of an inch. Relative humidity values will be a bit higher, but fire danger will remain a concern due to lightning. Storm motions on Wednesday will be from the west/southwest to the east/northeast.
Conditions will dry out again on Thursday and Friday, but gusty west/southwest winds are expected both days which will keep the fire danger elevated. Winds should start to relax on Saturday with sunny and dry conditions prevailing.
Temperatures will be near average through Saturday, though mornings will be a bit on the chilly side with valley lows dipping into the 30s.
