Bryce Canyon Weather
Bryce Canyon's elevation makes the weather ideal during all four seasons. It's warm (but not hot) in the summer, and snows in the winter, allowing this playground to stay open all year long.
- Spring: Bryce’s spring is closer to winter and temps don’t really start warming until May. Be prepared for snowstorms in March and April. Bring layers, lots of layers.
- Summer: Summer is beautiful in Bryce Canyon. The temps hover in the low 70s in June and hit the 80s in July and August, making hiking a much less sweaty affair than in other parts of southern Utah. It’s a perfect time to beat the city heat and head out into the fresh, thin air. Exercise caution, however: Summer rains start in late July and August and can leave you drenched and exposed to lightning. So be smart. When the thunder starts, stop hiking.
- Fall: Winter can come quickly in Bryce, but September temperatures are ideal, usually staying in the 70s during the day. October is a weather checkerboard, with storms some days and perfect blue skies the next. As always, check the weather forecast and bring one layer warmer than you think you’ll need. It's all about the layers.
- Winter: Snow-capped hoodoos might be dazzling, but they come at a cost: Winter temps in Bryce almost always dip below freezing and the days can be brisk. Snow can start in October and can last until April, but the coldest months are December through February. So layer up, pack warm and check the weather. It might be nippy but it’s worth it.
