Summer Departs

by Derek Farr

A powerful late-summer storm roared into the area Sunday evening dropping temperatures from the 70s to the 40s in less than half an hour.

By mid-morning on Labor Day much of the area experienced the first snowfall of the year.

Bondurant and Pinedale saw a dusting of wet snow that meltedw ithin minutes, while Boulder and Big Piney had some flakes mixed with giant raindrops. The Wind River, Gros Ventre and Wyoming Ranges were covered with a thin layer of snow.

According to the National Weather Service, Riverton and the Yellowstone East Entrance reported a trace of snow and Burgess Junction in Sheridan County reported three inches of the white stuff.

Dry weather with daytime high temperatures in the high 60s to low 70s and lows dropping near or below freezing are forecast for the next week.
