Weather in October

October is the time of peak foliage in Alaska with spectacular colors on display. Hues of gold, crimson, orange, and many others make the landscape look straight out of fairyland. Juneau is warmer between 39°F (3.9°C) to 42°F (5.6°C) than the average temperatures in the state that are in the cold 19°F (-7.2°C) to 31°F (-0.6°C) range. Down south, the Kenai Peninsula and Kenai Fjords are home to thousands of marine animals that are still enjoying mild water temperatures.
The ample snowfall of 33" (838mm) in late fall drives the remaining summer crowds away. The partly cloudy skies see regular precipitation in the form of snow and rain, while strong winds increase the intensity of the cold in the evenings.
Days are short, and the cold nights mandate layers of clothing, preferably an insulated jacket, mittens, and boots while stepping outdoors. Expect temperatures to drop sharply after sunset. October offers cheap accommodations and travel due to fewer crowds and cold conditions.
