What Is the Weather Like in Interior Alaska in June

In summer, the diurnal temperature cycle in the continental interiors may be quite large. This means it is chilly in the morning as the nighttime temperature minimum is around 6 am local time on a cloud-free day. Thus, you need a cover up when you are out early. In the afternoon, it may be 18 to 27F (10 to 15oC) warmer than at 6 am. In the evening, it may get chilly and again a cardigan comes in handy. What do you schlep with you to keep comfy in the early morning, AC at work and late evening?

In June, I took a staycation. When the weather and the air pollution from the wildfires allowed I spend a lot of time working in the yard. At this time in the year, the daylight is still 24/7. Thus, everything grows 24/7. This means mowing the lawn twice a week and pulling weeds. I still have not made up my mind whether wild roses, raspberries, dandelions, iris or delphinium are the worst. The dryness meant watering the plants at least every second day. Temperatures reached the 90s (32.2oC). In the mornings, they were already above 60F (15oC).


How to Keep Your House Cool without AC?

Most Alaskan houses have no air condition. The houses are build to keep the heat. Thus, Alaskans open their windows in the very early morning hours to let cool air in and close them later when the outside temperature goes up. This method works fine, when you can open the window. However, when the smoke from wildfires around the Fairbanks metropolitan area forbid opening the windows, the house feels warm like a sauna. Lucky are those who have their air conditioner summer ready.

Summer Sunday Brunch Outfit

When we went out for brunch on Sunday, I took the opportunity to dress up in my black with leopard print insets wrap dress with sandals and a black straw hat. This combination is a non-boring all neutral look. The wedge sandals’ colors pick up the tan, white, black and brown of the print.

June Date Night Outfit

On a hot June evening, wearing a tank top and skirt is always a good idea in Interior Alaska, even for date night. I wore a feminine flare skirt and a floral print knit top and heels. We had planned to go out for dinner at the river.

Summer cloudy day outfit

There were a couple of rainy days. On one of those days, I sew a tiered skirt from old silk shirts. Its colors go well with my olive boatneck shirt. Going outside required a jacket. Olive looks great with pink. The skirt has some turquoise in the print. So I picked that color up with the pumps. The bag ties the colors of the print, jacket and shoes together.

Warm Summer Day Outfit

I wore the same skirt with a graphic short sleeve T-shirt on a warm June day when temperatures topped at 77F (25oC). This shirt is the same as I wore in my history of the graphic T-shirt post. The Tee picks up the light blue in the print of the skirt and the navy of the espadrilles. The skirt’s print also has the color of the wedge.

Other Things What to Wear in Alaska in June

When gardening I wore my kuspuks for protection from the mosquitoes. I just don’t like to be lunch, dinner, a midnight snack or breakfast. Read more about what to do about the mosquitoes in Fairbanks. You have seen these Native Alaskan sewn clothes in various posts. They are my “gardening uniform” sort of. Well, I also did some vitamin D-building, i.e. laying outside on the deck in the bikini that I wore outside at 40 below in winter.

    I’m glad you’re getting some warm weather. Although, dealing with the heat and wildfires is no good.

  12. You are so cute twirling in that pretty skirt. I love the look with the pink blazer! It is interesting how some people in the US don’t have a/c in their homes. I hope the temperature gets more favorable soon and I’m sure the bad air makes it extra challenging!


  13. All of these outfits are so chic! Your tiered skirt is so cute! I’m so impressed that you made it from old shirts!
