Warming temps in Yellowstone Park
Warmer temperatures are creeping their way into Yellowstone for the weekend. The forecasts include some temps in the 60s — for the first time this spring — which could certainly muck up the proceedings. (With snow on the ground, a temp in the 60s still means plenty of chills. Bring warm clothing if you’re hitting the Park: temps at night are still around freezing.) Expect plenty of hazards on the roads: runoff freezes overnight and becomes an ice patch, rivers and streams flow past their banks, and trails and walkways are blocked by snow. You can also expect temporary road closures and delays while NPS crews deal with these circumstances.
