I plan on starting some type of green house in my back yard and I'm thinking a lot about what type of efficient heating system to make it work. It would be so helpful to know the high and low data for the area so I can judge how cold it could get during this spring time. Is there a website or even an excel file with this data. I am savy at excel so I could get the data and do some graphs and all that. Let me know what you could do.

If you're looking for actual recorded highs and lows that will be more time consuming. You certainly can find the average high and low for each month of the year though, that's easy and free.

The Western Region Climate Center has awesome records on this but they are a bear to find. Go to the link on the right and you'll be at the Salt Lake data page. You'll want to scroll to the very bottom where it says "Daily Summary Stats (~55 KB) Monthly Tabular data (~2 KB) ". Click those and you'll get the average highs and lows per month and also the records for SLC. This might be helpful.

You can also use the "now data" portion of the climate page at the NWS to get more info on Bountiful. With that data you can get record highs and lows for Bountiful too.

Now if you want actual highs and lows (recorded observations) you can get them in a couple of places. is a great one and you can type in the city and then hit enter, then you just scroll down to the history and almanac section, it's very user friendly.

If you want just highs and and lows for the past year in Salt Lake you can get those with the now data for this month and last or use the Preliminary Climatology CF6 data from the regular page. There's a link for that too. I know, all these wacky weather nerd terms!

Good luck on your project!
