The weather is like that of most of Interior Alaska. Throughout the year, the weather can change quickly, so it is wise to pack for any season with clothing that can be layered, ready to peel off or add as conditions dictate.
In the spring, clear skies, increasingly longer days and warming temperatures break winter's hold on the land with dramatic quickness.
Summers are cloudy and cool, but clear, hot days are not uncommon in July, the warmest month. August tends to be cool and wet, but with fewer mosquitoes.
Fall can be delightfully clear, but the season is short. September tends to be cool and wet, but with fewer mosquitoes.
Winters are cold, with temperatures dropping to 50 below zero. Average snow cover in winter is two feet.
