  MAP & WEATHER

Weather
ALASKA - JULY
Alaska's climate is not known for its consistency, and it's not uncommon for more than one season to be crammed into a single day. Don't stake your raincoat on it, but Southeast and Southcentral Alaska generally experience high rainfall and moderate temperatures with summers averaging 60-70°F. In the Interior precipitation is light but temperatures fluctuate wildly. The climate in the western coastal region is mostly cool with summer temperatures around 45°F with fog and rain common along the coast. Most of Alaska experiences the magic of the midnight sun, a surfeit of daylight which apparently sanctions the kind of madness which finds whole families undertaking 6mi (10km) hikes after dinner and softball teams convening for a witching hour hit-up.
