Changing weather reminds Wyoming residents to take advantage of the waning days of summer before bluster and cold begin to dominate.

On a placid lake one recent morning, a paddler and her canine companion enjoy warm-weather tranquility. Get it while you can.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts “a parade of snowstorms” for northern Wyoming this winter, according to Jackson meteorologist Jim Woodmencey, who runs the MountainWeather website and writes a column with the same name for the Jackson Hole News&Guide.

 The almanac map, a must-see for skiers, snow-plowers, ranchers and other weather-dependent denizens, calls for “low temps, deep powder” in the southern and western third of the state. Cheyenne and Laramie will be “more wet than white.”
