Anchorage Weather

Anchorage, Alaska is a subarctic climate with short, relatively cool summers. Average highs in June and July are 65 degrees to 70 degrees, while the lows are around 55 degrees in the evening. This is also the land of the midnight sun! In Anchorage, the sun will "go down" but it will not get dark in the late evening/early morning. People not from Alaska can find this a little disorienting if they are used to planning their day by the suns position!
