Usually mid-to-late October. However it does definitely vary. Last year or the year before it was late September and one year not too long ago we didn't get any snow until late November. However, the average first snow of the season is in October.

That's amazing. I've read that before, but every time I look on weather.com and see that it is 82 degrees in SLC at the end of Sept. it's hard to imagine snow is a real possibility in less than a month!

Last year, we went to the State Fair in early September. It hit 95 degrees that day. The following Saturday, the rain mixed with snow. It didn't stick, but still.

And it depends in part on what elevation you are talking. The mountains will usually get snow that sticks before the valley. However, depending on lake effect snows, some parts of the valley will get much more snow than the east benches. Other areas of the USA also get lkae effect snows-this is when the wind blows acorss the lake and picks up more moisture and it all lands where the wind drops it, usually in a somewhat narrow band.

The year I moved here, there was sleet on June 6 when I put my garbage cans outside for the 1st time and the airport temp was 32; the first snow in the city was on Thanksgiving night and it didn't stop until Sat. P.m. Then it snowed again on Sunday. In 2006, Sugarhouse got about 15 inches in MArch, overnight. And either the week before that or the week after, can't remember, we got another 8 inches. Seems like last year, I didn't have to have the driveway blown off until in Dec. but then I had to have it down 3 more times in Dec.

It can go from 82 to 32 in a few hours :-)

Last year the first snow fell on Sept. 29. It didn't stick for very long, but hey, it fell...and it counts! LOL!!

Hmmm....I am the happy one that it is still warm and the sun is still shining brightly. If I end up getting radiant heating in my driveway, well then, it can snow a little for you guys, I guess
