Alaska's Climate

Alaska’s climate varies wildly by region and season from a temperate maritime climate at 51º north to the Arctic climate of Utqiagvik at 71.3 º northern latitude. Depending on latitude, elevation or a location adjacent to sea or inland, a multitude of very different climate zones are predominant.
