Utah’s weather is dry and cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Much of the severity of these two extremes is dependent on the elevation. Towns and cities in higher elevations are considerably colder in the winter with snowfall exceeding 400 inches per year. Areas in southern Utah like Moab receive much less snow and are much hotter in the summer.
