What to Expect in Anchorage

One advantage of the Summer Residency is, of course, summer and plenty of daylight!  In July we have 18 hours of light and the average daily high is 65 degrees, although a 10-degree range in either direction is not unusual. The weather can quickly shift from hot and sunny to cool and rainy.
