Cheyenne Meteorologist Expects Windy, ‘Up and Down’ Winter
Cheyenne-based meteorologist Don Day Jr. says all indicators are pointing to a windy and fairly wet winter for Wyoming this year.
But Day says the good news is that the upcoming winter season probably won’t feature a lot of exceptionally long cold periods. He says this year features a La Nina weather pattern in the Pacific ocean. That means cooler-than-average weather over the ocean, leading to a windy winter with a fair amount of snowfall for Wyoming.
But he says it will also mean a lot of changes in the weather over the course of the winter, with warmer and cooler weather alternating over relatively short periods. Extended periods of very cold–or unusually warm–weather probably won’t be common over the upcoming few months.
Day is the founder and owner of Dayweather Inc. in Cheyenne.
