Nenana Weather & Climate

Central Alaska has a climate of long, cold winters and short, cool summers. Weather in this region is very unpredictable. Temperatures of 70 degrees in summer is common, yet it's also been known to snow in August. The north and south side of the Alaskan Range Mountains have a completely different climate. The Gulf of Alaska carries moisture to the south side, but the mountains block water to the north side. This means a drier climate and huge temperature fluctuations to the north. The south has a transitional maritime continental climate, with cooler, summers and warmer winters.
