Weather Front Could Close Beartooth Pass

Written by on September 10, 2019

Thanks to the rain and cooler weather this week, the fire danger in the mountains west of Cody has declined dramatically.

The fire danger in Yellowstone National Park has been lowered to “moderate,” and Park Officials say there are no fire restrictions currently in place in the park.

And for those who are planning to travel the Park and the Beartooth Pass, the National Weather Service is forecasting snow showers today and tomorrow, with heavy snow possible Wednesday. 6 to 8 inches of snow is possible over the Beartooth Pass between Cody and Red Lodge, Montana, tomorrow, which could close the pass for a day or two. It is not uncommon for Beartooth Pass to see enough snow to close the pass in August or September.
