Hikers should always be prepared for a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions while hiking in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Temperatures in the mountains typically fluctuate as weather patterns change, especially at the higher elevations. Be prepared for rain , shine and wind.
The weather in the region in the late May can be very different and it depends on altitude. In general, we should expect day temperatures in the mid 60s, dropping close to freezing at night.
Wearing layers is the best solution for this. Make sure you take waterproof jacket in case of rain!
