May weather forecast and Climate
Fairbanks, AK

May welcomes the lovely spring season to Fairbanks as the landscape goes green in the city. The skies are bright as the temperatures ascend in the mild 37.9°F (3.3°C) to warm 61°F (16.1°C) range.
May is dry, but dewdrops gather on flowers like beautiful pearls in the mornings, and the greenery has a tinge of wetness. The daylight lasts for a long 19 hours, and the sun is in the sky for 10.5 hours every day.
Freshwater streams and waterfalls roar in the nearby hills as the snow thaws slowly. Bring warm clothes for the night even though the days are warm in Fairbanks in May.
