Might be a good time to gain some elevation to keep your cool, as we are looking at the has the potential to be the Hottest Day of the Year, so far…coming up this weekend.
A large and very hot Ridge of High pressure building northward from the Four-Corners Region of the country the next few days will bring afternoon highs up around 90 degrees in the Jackson Hole Valley this weekend.
We made it to 84 degrees a couple weekends ago in Town, and we will easily top that this week.
- Record high temp in Jackson for this time of the month (June 28 to 30) is 91 degrees, set back in 1990.
- Hottest June day ever in Jackson was 95 degrees set back on June 26, 1988.
Photo below taken from Lower Saddle looking at Grand Teton last Saturday. Very cool up there at 11,600-ft. last weekend….in the 40’s. This weekend it will be in the 60’s to near 70 up there! Daytime freezing levels (where it is 32 degrees) will be up above 16,000-ft. and overnight the freezing levels probably won’t even get down to the elevation of the summit of the Grand (13,770-ft.).
