The climate of Fairbanks (Alaska - United States of America)
Fairbanks is one of the largest cities in the interior of Alaska. From here you can spot the Aurora Borealis, also known as the northern light for about 200 days per year. During the winter the days only last for a couple of hours. During the summer it remains light for almost 24 hours per day. Fairbanks has a cold land climate, also known as a subarctic climate. Because of its situation in a valley unique weather conditions occur here.
Besides large differences in temperatures between summer and winter there are also large differences in temperatures between the seasons. Because of the absence of sun light during the winter it is extremely cold in this valley. However, when the wind comes from the south temperatures may suddenly rise. Another phenomenon that occurs here is glazed frost. Because of the humidity in combination with low temperatures drops of water freeze which form some sort of mist.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
