(Wyoming) – Temperatures are dipping well below zero across the Cowboy State this week, but luckily for us, it won’t come close to the coldest days in Wyoming history.
In a state known for icy winters, the coldest recorded temperature was at Riverside Ranger Station in Yellowstone National Park. On February 9th, 1933 temperatures plummeted to -66.
On February 10th, 1981 a ranch just outside of Jackson recorded a -62 degree temperature. Keeping the February theme, on the 8th in 1929, temps reached -60 near the unincorporated town of Border Junction in Lincoln County.
Bondurant reached -57 on Feb. 1st, 1951 and in 1963 on January 10th -55 was recorded in the small town of Dixon.
