Utah Climate & Weather

Utah Climate and Weather


Utah has plenty of sunshine and low humidity. The Utah climate is semiarid to arid, depending on the region, and most of the state is at a high elevation. Snowfall is common state-wide, except in the Great Salt Lake Desert and at the southern border. The lower altitudes usually experience snow from November to March, while the higher altitudes experience snow from October to May, with snow cover on the mountains sometimes continuing until July. The Wasatch Mountains usually experience good snow, making the area's ski resorts popular with winter outdoor sport enthusiasts. Summer temperatures in Utah are usually about 79°F (26°C), with winter temperatures around 30°F (-1°C). In the north, spring is usually the wettest season, while summer and autumn are the wettest further south. Most of the mountainous areas experience more rain in winter. Sporadic thunderstorms, caused by monsoons, can occur during summer and fall, creating flash floods and wildfires.
