The National Weather Service says Wyoming can expect a warmer-than-usual winter this year.
Temperatures have been above average for more than a year, and Meteorologist Chris Jones says the trend is likely to continue. He says it’s not yet clear how much snow the region will get this winter, but dry conditions would not be surprising.
Jones says that doesn’t bode well for Wyoming’s farmers and ranchers.
Wyoming is host to two of the world’s most comprehensive weather modification studies. The studies are unique due to our geography, but they’re also more comprehensive than past research has been. And the water-hungry world is waiting for results. Irina Zhorov reports.
