The climate of Utah (United States of America)
The state of Utah is located in the western part of the United States. Utah is located at the convergence of three distinct geological regions: The Rocky Mountains in the northeast, the Great Basin in the west and the Colorado Plateau in the southeast. Western Utah is mostly arid desert with a basin and range topography, precipitation figures here are low. The climate here is classified as a dry desert climate. The combination of this climate type with large salt plains form an ideal terrain for car manufacturers to test their new models. Especially hot days during the dry summer are ideal to expose new models to extreme conditions. The rest of Utah has a cold steppe climate, locally a warm steppe climate and a mix of several different continental climate types with a large contrast between the coldest days of winter and the hottest days of summer. Many winter sport regions are situated in Utah which are popular because of the excellent snow quality. Dry and large snowflakes cause an excellent layer of snow for skiing or snowboarding. Extremes in weather are not uncommon in Utah. The highest temperature on record is 47 degrees Celsius (115 degrees Fahrenheit) which was recorded near St. George. The lowest temperature on record is -56.3 degrees Celsius (-69 degrees Fahrenheit) which was recorded in Peter Sinks on 1 February 1985.

More climate information
Climate tables are useful but they don’t give an overall picture of the climate and possible weather conditions during a period of time. How high the chances are of hot or cold weather or hurricanes can often not be found in these tables. This is why we offer extra climate information per month. The figures below apply to Salt Lake City. For climate figures on specific regions and places please, visit the relevant individual climate pages.
