Weather in November

November sees severely cold weather in Alaska with the onset of the long winter season. The average temperatures are below freezing in the 6°F (-14.4°C) to 18°F (-7.8°C), but nights are below 0°F (-17.8°C) in many places. Fairbanks is between -6°F (-21.1°C) to 11°F (-11.7°C) in interior Alaska, while Bettles in the extreme north registers between -8°F (-22.2°C) to 6°F (-14.4°C). None of the fair-weather crowd remains in the state as the temperatures drop drastically.
The darkest days of the year are in November, with the daily sunshine hardly lasting more than 3 hours. Snowfall is substantial to the tune of 40" (1016mm), with the Valdez area as the highest recipient. Few outsiders remain in the state to bear the extreme cold with the help of equally well-suited winter equipment. Snowstorms can limit visibility to a few meters.
Drive carefully through deer crossings as the large ones of the species such as moose, caribou, and elk can cause significant damage to vehicles. November vacations rarely sell in Alaska.
