Very Cold Temperatures Thursday Morning

Unseasonably cold, arctic air remained in place across western and central Wyoming overnight under a clearing sky.  Fresh snow cover earlier in the week only helped to push temperatures to well below zero for the second night in a row.  Many areas recorded low temperatures between -25F and -15F.  The coldest temperatures were recoreded in the lower valleys of the Big Horn Basin and Yellowstone National Park where overnight temperatures bottom out between -30F and -46F.

An approximate map of overnight low temperatures is provided below.  Click here for a more complete listing of specific locations and associated low temperatures from this morning.  The cold air will begin to retreat today and Friday with warmer temperatures on the way for the weekend.  High temperatures should be back to more seasonal readings in the 30s by Sunday or Monday.
