    “Feels-Like” Temperatures

    The way we experience weather isn’t all about temperature. Higher temperatures affect us much more at higher humidity, and colder temperatures feel piercing with high winds. Our perceived temperatures factor in humidity and wind chill to better represent how hot or cold the day feels to a person.

    Overall Utah Travel Experience by Season

    Spring (March through May)

    Humidity and temperatures combine to make this season feel moderately cold. Highs range from 80.3°F (26.8°C) and 47.6°F (8.7°C) with warmer temperatures in the later months. Rain is somewhat common with 4 to 5 days of precipitation per month. Spring is slow/unreported for tourism, which makes it a good time for those looking for deals.

    Summer (June through August)

    The middle-year months have very comfortable weather with high temperatures that are quite warm. These months see moderate precipitation with 2 to 5 days of precipitation per month. June – August is slow/unreported season for tourism in Utah, so lodging and other accommodations may cost as much as usual.

    Fall (September through November)

    Fall daily highs range from 85.5°F (29.7°C) and 46.3°F (7.9°C), which will feel chilly given the humidity and wind. It rains or snows a fair amount: 3 to 4 days per month. Tourism is slow/unreported during these months due to the weather, so hotels may be normally priced.

    Winter (December through February)

    Weather is far too cold this time of year in Utah to be enjoyable for warm weather travelers. The average high during this season is between 48.7°F (9.3°C) and 34°F (1.1°C). On average, it rains or snows a noticeable amount: 4 to 6 times per month. These times of year are slow/unreported with tourists.
