August is a wonderful summer month with swelling tourist numbers in Wyoming. The average temperatures are in the 45°F (7.2°C) to 85°F (29.4°C) range with 24 sunny days across the state. The southeast mountain ranges, such as Laramie have moderate temperatures in the 47°F (8.3°C) to 78°F (25.6°C), while the northeast is a little higher in the range of 52°F (11.1°C) to 86°F (30°C). Burgess Junction in north-central Wyoming is a little cooler between 40°F (4.4°C) to 70°F (21.1°C). Rain is sparse to the tune of 1" (25mm) to 2" (51mm) and is not a threat to outdoor activities. By late summer, most parts of the state experience little rainfall, and the conditions are dry. Light clothing is usually sufficient in August to wade through the river waters or traverses the high mountain trails. Watch out for wildfires in the dry season and keep an eye on thunderstorms, which arrive unexpectedly and throw a spanner in vacation plans.
