Weather in May

We are thinking of visiting the area in middle May. How off season is it during this time and what is the weather normally like? We would be visiting Grand Teton NP and possibly Yellowstone mostly see the park lodges and possibly to do a small amount of hiking.

1. Re: Weather in May

Spring weather can be unstable, snow showers one day, showers the next, peppered with nice sunny days. The temps can range anywhere from 30-60 and it can still snow on the ground, especially in the high country/canyons and parts of Yellowstone. Most of the time, this is not the greatest time of year for hiking unless you use crampons or in easier areas, snow shoes as you might encounter icy conditions or post hole. However, wildlife viewing, especially in Yellowstone can be wonderful but again due to numerous baby animal activity, its wise to check with a Ranger for bear activity on any trails you decide to hike, if they are passable. Just come prepared for a VA winter LOL and layers in case it warms up.
