From the cold desert of the arctic to the seasonal extremes of the interior to the windswept islands of the Bering Sea to the temperate rain forest of the southeast panhandle, Alaska has more climatic variety than any other state. Here is a complete but easy to follow chart outlining the six primary climate areas and giving a narrative description along with month-by-month precipitation, temperature and wind data for each. The background map not only shows the climate zones, but shaded relief of weather-influencing terrain, rivers, lakes, ocean depths, sea surface temperatures, sea ice, and principle weather stations. Also includes 14 all-time Alaska weather extremes.
