Now that's not so scary
Rain is the most unpredictable part of
Alaska's unpredictable weather. Statically, June is the driest
month with the chance of rain increasing until late August, when the
it tends to get dryer again. That being said, it is very
common for a season not to follow this pattern, and the difference
from one week to the next is likely to be greater than the
difference between the months.
A typical 8 day tour will get about 1/2 day
Now of course, all this
doesn't mean it won't rain on you. This far north, anything
can happen at any time. The best way to avoid rain is to have
all the gear we recommend. Then, perhaps, the irony inherent
in nature will send us perfect weather just to spite you.
That's a outcome we can
all live with!
And you'll have a whole
bunch of fancy rain gear... It'll come in handy somewhere!!
