Default Winters in Utah?

How are the winters in Utah, as far as snow is concerned?
I've looked into Layton and St. George area, Layton looks alot but does the snow last. I'm not the one for long term snow.

Thank you!
Mike

In St. George area you will rarely see snow. If it does it may be an inch or so and then will melt off right away. The winters are generally short and more mild down here. There may be an occasional week where it's cold and windy but all in all pretty mild. Hope this helps

Thanks I dont mind the cold windy and harsh cold weather for short period of time but from Novemberish to March or so of that isn't what I like or enjoy. What about the heat in the summer?

The coolest part of the winter I would say is Dec. & Jan. but not every day...just cold spells here and there and mild days in between. It's sunny pretty much all winter. Feb starts getting more spring like. The summer seems to last forever. It can be well over 100 from June through Sept. were talking 110 plus! We hit 117 for a few days this last summer. Hotter than hades! The only positive thing I can say about the summer is that you don't get the humidity. So the summer does get pretty extreme but there are nice places you can go nearby to escape the heat.

Okay thank you Debbee for all the information, I am just looking to go down there after college (in 4 years). So I have time to find a good spot that I can enjoy all year round. I'd go to college there if i was a resident :-P but I'm in PA so I am going here

Thank you.

I Guess it comes down to what you hate less...snow or heat.

Layton....it definitely snows...50 or so inches on average in winter...but less than that for the last 3 winters. Summer time the temps only get to 100 for an avg of 8-10 days per summer...but it is generally in the mid 90s during the day.

St George...may only snow 2-3 time per winter and not a lot. Summers are HOT!! Cen easily reach 110 anytime late June through early Sept. The all time hottest temp in Utah of 118 was reached this past summer just outside the city of St. George.

St. George gets less rain the Layton. St. george is much windier as a whole also. If you have any other questions feel free to PM me.

Thank you, do you know any other towns that are populated but not huge and not small? that has a mild snowing season? and that isn't to expensive and would be good for someone coming out a college, when I plan on moving I should be out of college with a Business Education or Computer information Systems degree. Only reason I am waiting to after college is cost. If I am going to be a teacher all i will need to do I hope is that a certification exam to teach in utah.

Thank you!

Park City gets quite a bit of snow, as does Eden, Mountain Green, and Logan. The higher elevation you go, the more snow you are going to have.
