Climate & Location


Wyoming’s climate is much more comfortable than the national average. At an average altitude of 6,100 feet, the temperature in Wyoming rarely exceeds 100 degrees F. The local high temperature for the Cheyenne area averages around 82 degrees F in the summer months and 40 degrees F in the winter months. Source: usclimatedate.com


Cheyenne rests on a broad plateau 6,100 feet above sea level. Majestic mountains to the west act as a moisture barrier, lending to the city’s semi-arid climate. Bathed in sunshine and clear blue skies 327 days a year, the city experiences 52 inches of annual snowfall, which quickly melts away in the sun’s warm rays.

  • Average monthly temperature 58.5 degrees F
  • Average monthly humidity 52%
  • Annual precipitation 15.92 inches
  • Average wind velocity a mild 13 mph

A Cheyenne site can provide your company productive synergies associated with its proximity to the Front Range region of the Rocky Mountains.

  • Cheyenne is at the crossroads of I-80 and I-25, and only 90 minutes north of Denver by I-25
  • Strategically located at major transportation and communication hubs

Cheyenne is a location of choice partly because of where it is — near the geographical and time center of the North American continent. Cheyenne manages a transportation triple play with the intersection of Interstates 80 and 25, Union Pacific and BNSF railroads and Denver International Airport (DIA) on 90-minues away.
