How often does it reach 70s? I feel like I'd love Alaska, especially the southeastern part but I'm afraid that's it's too cold.
Avg high is in the mid 60's, we probably hit 70 10 times a year or so. 80 once or twice. I've seen 90 once in S.E. Last year was the warmest and driest I can ever remember, but the summer before was probably the rainiest and coldest.
April-July is the sunniest part of the year, it starts to get more rainy and cooler when August gets here.
We had something out at the University today. The campus is on a lake, with a bay on the othe side. Extremely beautiful place
A very well kept secret is Sitka, AK. It's about 100 miles from here but on the outside waters. Much warmer in winter, in fact Sitka gets less than half the snow Juneau gets. Temps range from 25-45 in winter.
The Sound is absolutely gorgeous. There's a dormant volcano on the horizon.
