Bitter cold registered Sunday morning across the county

While Fremont County failed to get a big snow as predicted over Christmas, the forecast for brutally cold temperatures were right on the mark. The National Weather Service Forecast Office at Riverton Regional Airport reported Jeffrey City and South Pass each with an inch of snow from the holiday storm, with nearly an inch in Riverton and lesser amounts in the rest of the county. The bulk of the snowfall fell in Teton County with 7 inches at Teton Village and in Natrona County with 5.5 inches just West-Southwest of Casper. The cold temperatures dipped to a minus 23 at Jeffrey City, a minus 17 at Riverton, a minus 13 at Dubois, a minus 12 on Beaver Rim and a minus 11 in Sinks Canyon near Lander. The coldest temperatures in the region occurred at Bondurant in Sublette County at minus 31, minus 30 at Fossil Butte National Monument in Lincoln County, minus 25 at Independence Rock in Natrona County, minus 24 at Big Piney, minus 22 at Pinedale and minus 23 at Rock Springs. Yellowstone's coldest spot was at Canyon Village with a minus 20 degree reading. Monday morning's low temperatures have yet to be reported, but the forecast is for below zero readings overnight each day this week with daytime temperatures below 20 degrees. *Feature Photo: The temperature in downtown Riverton this morning at 8 a.m. as registered on a car thermometer readout.
