What is the average precipitation for the Salt lake Valley?

Thank you.......

Brian N.


We get this inquiry pretty often. SLC averages 16.50 inches of precipitation a year, this includes snow melt in the city. The most ever was 24.26 inches in the year of 1983.

You can find the table with the precipitation information at the link on the right.

Now, if you are not interested in the SLC precip but want info on other communities you'll need to visit the link to the Western Region Climate Center. You can click on the city you want to find information about. Once you click you will automatically get a table with the average precipitation for that location.

For example, if we click on Kanab we find out that the average total precipitation is 13.55 inches for the year.
