We have a full moon tonight, called the "Beaver Moon". One of our meteorologists took these pictures of it from our office this evening. #beavermoon  #fullmoon  #wywx 

Quite a rapid change in temperatures at Cody. From 4:50 and 5:50 am, the temp rose from 9 to 45. Then from 5:50 am to 6:35 am, it fell from 45 to 12. That's a total change of 69 degrees in only an hour and 45 minutes! #wywx 

It was a bit chilly for many of us this morning, but let's look back on how cold it was last month. October 2019 was the second coldest October on record for the Cowboy State. #wywx

More clouds tonight, but we got a few more shots of the #BeaverMoon  in some of the breaks. #FullMoon 

Any snow ending early. Otherwise a mix of clouds and sun, more clouds northeast, more sun southwest. #wywx

First Snow! Say it ain't so! We're afraid so. Sorry all, the first snow is indeed upon us. A cold front will move in this evening bringing much cooler air, rain, & snow in the higher elevations. Winter Weather Advisories are out from midnight tonight to 6 AM Tuesday. #wywx
