Best weather to visit Yellowstone National Park

Autumn in Yellowstone National Park 2024

The beginning of autumn is still warm and charming, while at the end of the season the cold and snow comes very quickly

Best time: late September, October, November


Autumn is a transitional time, thus the days are mostly warm and nights are freezing cold. The trees in the park are dyed into splendid colours of yellow, red, and golden hues. At the end of September and in October snowstorms can occur. But the snow will remain typically only at higher elevations. The real cold comes in November and heavy snowstorms as well. This month is more similar to winter than to fall.
