Often people move away from Utah, or other places that get cold in winter, to find refuge in some place warm year round, like Arizona, Las Vegas, or Southern California. In the first two options you get heat most of the year (often too much), and rarely any other kind of weather. In Southern California, you get mild climate year round, but you also have to pay to live in Southern California, not to mention the traffic. If you love warm weather, but don’t want to live on the sun, or to pay an arm and a leg to be warm, consider Southern Utah.
Rarely Snowy, But Close to Snow
It snows, on average, 2 inches per year in St. George, UT. Compare that to the national average of 28 inches per year. If it snows, it is rare, and it does not last long. Furthermore, if you like to see and experience the snow, but don’t want to live in it, there are ski resorts in Southern Utah, not to mention that Northern Utah is a short trip up the I-15.
Hot When It Should Be, Cold When It Should Be
The summers in Southern Utah are a little warmer than northern but less hot than Las Vegas. It’s dry heat, and thus very tolerable, and even desirable. The winter is milder than Northern Utah, without the snow (as mentioned before). The daily average temperature in the summer is from a low of 68 to a high of 100. In the winter a low of 35 and a high of 60. These numbers speak for themselves. Southern Utah offers a warmer alternative without too much heat, cost, or traffic.
