The precipitation fell in areas of Yellowstone National Park and on Togwotee Pass between Dubois and Jackson. (AP) -- Yellowstone National Park is reporting snow at higher elevations, and meteorologists also spotted it on Togwotee Pass between Dubois and Jackson in northwestern Wyoming. National Weather Service meteorologist Dave Lipson said that even though both areas only received a dusting Wednesday, they are among the first in the state to see snow accumulations this season. The Weather Service reports the earliest recorded snowfall accumulation in populated areas in Wyoming was on Sept. 6, 1929, when Riverton received 3 inches. Lipson says elevations above 10,000 feet could see significant snow next week. Summer officially ends Sunday.
