Weather information for the Craters Of The Moon area is provided below. Average temperatures, climate details and current forecasts are included.
Craters of the Moon National Monument has a high desert climate and is located over a mile above sea level. The stark lava fields make the weather even more extreme. Late summer temperatures sizzle in the high '80s or '90s, and in the winter the temperature drops below freezing and there are frequent heavy snows. Wind gathers speed across the volcanic plains and is almost always blowing. Fortunately, in the spring and fall months temperatures are more mild, and the park’s peak visitation occurs in the spring when desert wildflowers can be seen.
