Weather in August

August is warm in Alaska as the beautiful summer draws to a close. Temperatures are in the average range of 42°F (5.6°C) to 58°F (14.4°C) statewide, with variations by altitude and region. Seward in the southcentral region registers temperatures in the mild 50°F (10°C) to 62°F (16.7°C) range. In the southwest, temperatures are between 45°F (7.2°C) to 60°F (15.6°C), with plenty of opportunities for fishing and watching wild animals and birds.
Late summer sees an increase in precipitation to the tune of 4.3" (109mm) in the state. The landscape is green, and although strong winds blow frequently, Alaska is the least tornado-prone region in the United States. Seawater temperatures are at the warmest of the year at 36°F (2.2°C) near Barrow in the north.
Tourists take full advantage of the daily sunshine that lasts for 5 hours in many places. Sweaters and jackets provide much-needed warmth in the cold evenings. Expect the summer warmth to decrease by the end of August in Alaska rapidly.
