Geography –

Juneau is located on the shores of the Gastineau Channel, in Southeast Alaska. Even though Juneau is on the mainland of North America, it is only reachable by plane or ship. Gastineau Channel is a relatively protected body of water that communicates with the Pacific Ocean. The town of Douglas is located just across from Juneau, and is reachable by bridge.

Climate –

Juneau’s climate is heavily influenced by its proximity to the ocean. Frequent storms come in off the ocean all throughout the year, though summer storms tend to be less intense. Overall, Juneau is one of the wetter locations in Alaska, but has quite a few sunny days. Summer temperatures tend to be mostly in the 60’s, with occasional warm days in the 70’s. Winter weather is characterized by frequent rain and snow storms. Because of the influence of the ocean, temperatures tend to be rather moderate in the winter compared to other locations in Alaska. Temperatures occasionally will drop below zero, but they are more likely to be above freezing, and rain is as likely as snow.
