Hi, our family will be moving to Davis County in April. We have found some beautiful homes in South Weber, but have heard it is pretty windy there. Does anyone know of any area in S. Weber that is not as windy? We like East Layton, but the homes are quite a bit more expensive for less house. I would like to stay East of Hwy 15. Thanks!

You are correct that South Weber is very windy. All I can suggest is this. If you must live there than try to live away from the highway (US 89) as much as possible. You can follow the Weber River west and get a home a little further up the canyon towards Roy. Also, when you buy a home get one with a brand new roof if possible.

I'm not familiar enough w/ the area to offer paticular advice, but stay away from the mouth of any canyon. I'm in Sugar House and last night I thought my fence was coming down, the wind was so strong! The news said 80 mph at the mtn peaks.

I don't know where exactly you should look, but wanted to add that S Weber is an attractive area!

South Weber is mostly windy in the mornings. It is much colder there because of the wind. They actually tried to get a wind farm, but it wasn't windy enough, so that might help. I don't know if you have kids, but the school there is amazing! All the teachers are wonderful! Another thing you need to watch for in South Weber is mud slides. There is a canal that runs along the top of the ridge that sometimes causes problems. East Layton is really nice, but there are more older homes. I live in West Layton, yes it is west of HWY 15, but it is a great area. Kaysville is absolutely wonderful as well. Fruit Heights is right off of HWY 89, but it probably is a little more expensive.

I lived there for 12 years .. I would never move back. The winds are horrible, especially during the winter month.. I watched my kids get blown down the road as they walked to catch the bus with the snow just being blown all over them.. Normally after 12pm, you can go outside without the wind blowing, but that isnt always the case. Yes, the elementary school was a great school when my kids were there. We used to get much more snow there too! The first year there, we had snow that covered our swingset out in the back yard. If you like the wind, then thats a place to live.. Heck you can fly a kite most every day! =)
