Weather in October

October lies in the middle of the fall season in Utah, with strikingly variable temperatures between day and night at various elevations. The average high temperatures tend to be comfortable in the 49°F (9.4°C) to 78°F (25.6°C) range, but the nights are cold in the 27°F (-2.8°C) to 50°F (10°C) range. The arid west experiences substantial diurnal temperature differences, with warm days ending in freezing nights. Cedar City in the west averages in the cold 34°F (1.1°C) to warm 66°F (18.9°C) range, while Moab in the south is between a mild 41°F (5°C) to warm 73°F (22.8°C).
While Utah does not inspire the awe of the brilliant fall season in New England, the cascade of colors constitutes brilliant hues shed by canyon maple, aspen, Douglas hawthorn, spruce, oak, and many more trees.
October brings the first snowflakes of the season in the mountains, and the atmosphere gradually turns cold. Driving through scenic byways is the best way to explore the peak fall foliage. Wear warm clothes, at least a sweater, during October evenings in Utah.
