Chugiak Weather & Climate

South-central Alaska has cool summers and bitterly cold winters. The summer weather is tempered by the relatively warm ocean waters to the south and the Alaska Range to the north, which protects it from the very cold temperatures common to interior Alaska. Summer temperatures are in the 60s and 70s, with occasional highs in the 80s. Winter temperatures average around 6.4 degrees F. minimum, but may fall to 20 degrees below zero and rise above freezing later on. September is the wettest month of the year. Summertime weather is typically cloudy, although sunny skies are not uncommon. This region receives about 50 inches of snowfall in the winter. There are two glaciers in the area, the Matanuska Glacier and the Knik Glacier. Wind blows off of these glaciers and funnels into the region.
