Buckrail - Weather

The storm system that brought us unsettled weather on Sunday ended up tracking north of the area, and as a result, we only saw a glancing blow with light precipitation that did include a dusting of snow for some areas early on Monday morning. However, the rest of Monday is looking dry with skies becoming mostly sunny in the afternoon. Highs will reach the low 50s in the valley with light to moderate winds from the west/southwest.

The rest of the week is actually looking unseasonably dry by May standards, given that this is typically one of Jackson Hole’s wettest months of the year. Mostly sunny skies will continue on Tuesday with highs warming up into the low 60s in the valley.

Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week ahead of a storm system that will pass north of our area on Wednesday night and Thursday. Winds will pick up out of the southwest on Wednesday afternoon and a light shower can’t entirely be ruled out on Wednesday afternoon or evening, but most areas in Teton County should stay dry. However, a cold front will arrive on Wednesday evening, ushering in cooler temperatures for Thursday.

Temperatures will start to warm back up again on Friday and the stretch of dry weather will continue into the weekend.
