Climate

Juneau Boat Harbor at Sunset, Alaska

The climate in Southeast Alaska is a mid-latitude oceanic climate (Köppen climate classificationCfb) in the southern sections and a subarctic oceanic climate (Köppen Cfc) in the northern parts. On an annual basis, Southeast is both the wettest and warmest part of Alaska with milder temperatures in the winter and high precipitation throughout the year. Juneau averages over 50 in (130 cm) of precipitation a year, and Ketchikan averages over 150 in (380 cm).[16] This is also the only region in Alaska in which the average daytime high temperature is above freezing during the winter months.
