Southeast Wyoming sizzles in record-breaking June


CHEYENNE, Wyo. — June 2024 was exceptionally warm across southeast Wyoming, setting new temperature records in Cheyenne and Laramie. According to the National Weather Service in Cheyenne, both cities experienced their warmest average temperatures for the month of June this year. The previous record for Cheyenne dated back to 2006, while Laramie’s former record was from 2012.

Rawlins also saw near-record heat, ending up with the second warmest June on record, only behind 1988. Scottsbluff, meanwhile, recorded its eighth hottest June, with the all-time record still held by June 2012.

The National Weather Service in Cheyenne noted that Chadron and Alliance had above-normal temperatures for June. However, these temperatures did not make it into the top 10 warmest Junes for these locations. This anomaly is attributed to the occasional intrusions of cooler and moister air from the east.
