Fourth of July Weather

Happy Fourth of July…. get outside and celebrate America‚Äôs Birthday!

A weak upper level disturbance moves by to the north of Jackson Hole this afternoon and evening, bringing a little bit of mid-level moisture and unstable air over Northwest Wyoming.

Expect some cumulus cloud build-up and some scattered thunderstorm activity around the Yellowstone & Teton Park regions later today. But that is probably the only weather to worry about for the rest of the Fourth of July week.

Cooler temps Tuesday, then warming up Wednesday thru Friday as a broad Ridge of High-pressure builds over the Rockies. Looks like great weather for the Fourth of July and the remainder of the week.

No signs at this point of any measurable precipitation Wednesday thru Sunday, although over the weekend we may start to see a few more clouds building in the afternoons.
