Plan Your Wedding According To Your Favorite Season
Summers can be quite hot at low elevations. Average temperatures in July range from 85F to 90F, but cool off after dark. Some regions of Wyoming are classified as deserts.
Winter is very cold in Wyoming, but it’s also a beautiful time of year. The air is very dry, so when it snows it comes down as light fluffy powder. Daytime highs rarely break the freezing mark between December and February. Snow tends to stick around all season once it begins to pile up.
Fall tends to be very pleasant, but winter sets in fast and early snowstorms can roll through September and October in the high country.
Spring isn’t the best time of year in Wyoming because the snow melts and creates muddy conditions in May and the temperatures remain chilly. Most of the rain falls in late spring and early summer, which is also a windy time of year.
