CLIMATE

Hoonah is known for cool summers, mild winters and moderate to heavy year-round precipitation.

Average summer temperatures range from 40 F to the mid 60's F and from 20 F to 40 F in the winter.
Because the weather can change so quickly people dress in layers. Casual, comfortable clothing, walking shoes and waterproof outerwear are appropriate year round!
