Freezing in July
by National Weather Service - Riverton Wyoming
July 29, 2015
Several locations in western Wyoming were on track to have their earliest last spring freeze date on record this year (the last date the low temperature was 32 degrees or colder) with no freezing temperatures since mid to late May. However, freezing temperatures behind Monday’s cold front let most of the old records stand with only three days to spare. The clock was winding down with July 31st the final day of the 'last freeze' of the season; August 1st starts the 'first freeze' season or a whole new ballgame. As someone once said who is not Mark Twain, "Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get". And sometimes in July, summer is what we expect and winter is what we get. Welcome to Wyoming!
The COOP stations in Dubois and Jackson are the only two locations on the list that are still on track to set a new record for the earliest last spring freeze date.
