Weather in April

April is the driest month of the year in Alaska as the spring season brings increased sunshine to the state. The days are mild to warm, but the nights are often cold and below freezing. The snowfall is ample and averages 28" (711mm) in the state, with Yakutat in the southeast receiving 10" (254mm).
Anchorage in the southcentral region registers temperatures in the 29°F (-1.7°C) to 46°F (7.8°C) but receives little rainfall and a moderate amount of snow. The average temperatures statewide are in the cold 16°F (-8.9°C) to mild 34°F (1.1°C) range as the snow starts to thaw in the southern part of the state.
Sunglasses are useful while traveling over the snow during the daytime. Vast glaciers, roaring freshwater streams, beautiful lakes, and the call of the wild are irresistible. Early spring is the time when grizzlies are busy fishing for salmons after awakening from hibernation. Expect black ice, numerous snowplows, and mush on the slippery roads in April in Alaska.
