NOW AVAILABLE! Long Range Outlook on NOAA Weather Radio

The National Weather Service in Riverton is proud to announce a new long range weather outlook for the basins of central Wyoming. This outlook relays the probabilities of above or below normal temperatures and precipitation for days 8 through 14, as well as the forecast confidence from the Climate Prediction Center. This product is created each afternoon from April through October, and plays on several NOAA All-Hazards Weather Radio transmitters every 15 minutes through mid-morning.

The long range outlook has been created in order to assist users in making planning decisions that extend beyond our normal 7-day forecasts. Potential users of this product include decision makers in the agricultural, fire supression, and hydrological industries.

The outlook will be available on six NOAA Weather Radio Transmitters across central Wyoming including:

  • Worland
  • Cody
  • Thermopolis
  • Dubois
  • Kaycee
  • Lander
  • and surrounding communities

These transmitters cover the Big Horn and Wind River Basins, as well as Johnson County.
