Pulling into my garage on a warm, sunny afternoon yesterday, I wanted to put my snow blower in the shed to make more room for my car. But in Cheyenne, it can snow about any time of year except:

“Cheyenne is normally free of snow every year during July and August.”

Current Results says the first snows usually start in October, though every 3 or 4 years it’ll begin in September. The last snowfall of the season generally comes in May, but you can’t count June out.

I asked our expert, Don Day when I could put away my snow blower and get out the lawnmower and he said:

“Over the past three seasons, we have used them both in the same period of time, in the middle of May. Wait until then because many of our bigger snows come late in the season.”

We can go for long stretches in mid-winter with no snow and that’s pretty typical. March, April, and May are when we typically get the bigger storms.

 

Don added that we’re slightly below average for moisture, but we can pick that up because March through June are the wettest months of the year.

We have a good chance of getting some getting some rain or wet snow Thursday night into Friday morning. There may be more Sunday and next month.

My fingers are crossed, my yard and trees are dry, and my snow blower still crowds my car.
