yellowstone in early sept..temps? busy?

so my wife and i are looking at our schedule and we BOTH have off labor day weekend so we thought what the heck....take off 2 weeks and go check out yellowstone.

been combing through thread after thread bout the place...lots of good advice on sites and places to visit......actually im kinda overwhelmed!! lol..normally just getting to the destination pretty much sum up my planning..haha...

anyway, we figured since school would be back in session it would be less busy?? no?.....

also, whar kind of temps can we expect? is this a good time to go or is there a more optimal time to enjoy the outside weather? we will be taking our 2yr old along, so even though we enjoy the more extreme level of hiking/mtn biking/climbing/camping,....this trip will be geared a little more conservative/laid back/fun/sights and views oriented....and also a certain level of camping comfort is required...ie temperature management (wether by ac or heater and we have generators if necesssary)...cold is no big deal as we have heat regardless, but if we will need ac that requires hookups or genny running?

i have not figured out much, as setting the dates is step one and we JUST did that....lol...and i havent been to yellowstone in about 30 years and last time i was a kid and we just did i drive by looking at some things....

now with a family and a 36ft trailer its gooing to be a lil different!!

thanks, im sure ill have more questions for those well traveled in the area between now and then...

cheeers

Sept is probably the best time to go. It is less crowded. The temps are starting to drop some but still comfortable, cool nights/warm days.

for weather, check out wunderground.com - you can get historical weather info such as the averages, the usual highs and lows for any city and time of year. I did when we planned our trip to Yellowstone several years ago (we went in June).

Gotta agree with Aquaman (ohh that hurts to say).

Sept is a great time to visit. The nights can get down in the thirties but the days warm up quickly.

It would be my first choice of time to visit!

In June the weather in Yellowstone was wonderful, it was light jacket weather in the day and we had some frosty mornings. The most beautiful clear blue skies. Still had snow on the ground in the high passes but did not need coats. And it was what we were expecting from what I got from wunderground. The crowds were just beginning to build too, each day closer to the 4th of July, there were more people.
