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.
Cheyenne rests on a broad plateau 6,100 feet above sea level. The Northern end of the Front Range Mountains to the west act as a moisture barrier, lending to the city’s semi-arid climate. Bathed in sunshine and clear blue skies 273 days a year, the city experiences 52 inches of annual snowfall, which quickly melts away in the sun’s warm rays.
