Geography and climate

Worland is located on the Big Horn River, in the Big Horn Basin. [7]

Worland experiences an arid climate ( Köppen BWk), but it is one that’s quite contrary to much of the state. Due to the location within the Big Horn Basin, it is protected from severe weather by the surrounding mountains from nearly every direction. This topography results in weather that is quite temperate with dry winters, little rainfall and few storms. [8]

Worland falls into USDA Hardiness Zone 4b. [9]
