 Historically, the best weather in Yakutat is in the time leading up to and just after the Summer Solstice in May and June. Yakutat’s climate can be characterized as relatively mild, often rainy weather – the region receives some of the heaviest precipitation in the state, averaging 150 inches, including 219 inches of snowfall. During the visitor season, normal clothing or fishing gear is appropriate to stay comfortable in the 50 to 60 degree weather.

 Northern location causes significant daylight shifts between winter, spring, summer and fall. At the time of the solstice Yakutat has about 19 hours of daylight contrasting with the 6 hours of daylight on the shortest day of the year in December.
