Weather in Kenai Fjords

Kenai Fjords National Park’s weather is heavily influenced by its maritime climate. The sea moderates temperatures and produces large amounts of precipitation. Summer temperatures are highly variable but are generally cool. Rain is a common event, and it can rain for days or weeks at a time. Overcast skies are typical, with occasional clear skies. Winters are cold, but not as severe as many other parts of Alaska. There are heavy snows in winter – the Exit Glacier area averages around 200 inches each winter, and this snow can persist into July. The statistics below are taken from the city of Seward, just east of the park, and the starting point for cruises into the park.
