With an estimated population of 190,884 in 2014, Salt Lake City lies at the core of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, which has a total population of 1,153,340 (2014 estimate). Salt Lake City is further situated within a larger metropolis known as the Salt Lake City-Ogden-Provo Combined Statistical Area. Salt Lake City has a total area of 110.4 square miles (286 km2) and an average elevation of 4,327 feet (1,319 m) above sea level.

Salt Lake City is located in the northeast corner of the Salt Lake Valley surrounded by the Great Salt Lake to the northwest and the steep Wasatch and Oquirrh mountain ranges on the eastern and southwestern borders, respectively. Salt Lake City’s encircling mountains contain several narrow glacial and stream carved canyons. Among these canyons, City Creek, Emigration, Millcreek, and Parley’s border the eastern city limits. The Great Salt Lake is separated from Salt Lake City by extensive marshlands and mudflats.

The climate of Salt Lake City is semi-arid, but also has a dry continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold, snowy winters.The primary source of precipitation in Salt Lake City is massive storms that move in from October to May.

Although rainfall can be heavy, these storms are usually scattered in coverage and rarely severe. Snow falls on average from 6 November to 18 April. The nearby Great Salt Lake is a significant contributor to precipitation in Salt Lake City. The lake effect can help enhance rain from summer thunderstorms and produces lake-effect snow approximately 6 to 8 times per year, some of which can drop excessive snowfalls. It is estimated that about 10% of the annual precipitation in the city can be attributed to the lake effect.Salt Lake City features large variations in temperatures between seasons.

However, average daytime July humidity is only 22%.Winters are cold but rarely frigid. During mid-winter, strong areas of high pressure often situate themselves over the Great Basin, leading to strong temperature inversions.
