Prudoe and Dempster in Aug

Headed to Prudoe and Inuvik in August from Charleston,SC. Any weather reports for that time frame?

Hot, cold, dry, and wet. Inuvik had 90s in mid-June this past year. Little to no darkness in the forecast however. Enjoy!

Good luck!

I always enjoy the Alaska RR's and I wish you luck on your trip with good weather added in. We have two of our kids that live in Anchorage so it's always fun to follow along on these kinds of trips.

Stay safe,

What bike and more importantly what tires? For the Dempster that is. If wet it can get interesting. Just saying.

The weather can change hourly on the Dempster. When it turns to rain, you'd better have knobbies. Either way its a spectacular ride !

Last year when I rode the dalton , only up till Coldfoot. The only time it rain was in the morning ONLY on the paved section .but weird, once I hit the dirt. It was either dry or a bit sluggish only. But I. The way back to Fairbanks around evening, I was nice and sunny.

This was the last week of August 2012. Don't let the Dalton scare you. It's not...that bad.

Asking for a weather forecast at high latitudes, much more than 24 hours in advance (and very often on even shorter time scales) is futile due to the rapidly changing weather patterns in those areas of the globe. As previously eluded to you should plan for the temperature to be between 30F and 90F with rain, sleet, snow, overcast, and severe sun.

You gotta be prepared for just about anything, the average summer temp in Barrow is 36F.
I heard in Anchorage they just got 6 inches of snow May 17.

The interior will be hot and dry and chances hitting smoke from fires is likely as well.

Thanks for the replies. Riding GSA with scouts for tread. Former Alaskan but have not passed the Brooks Range during that time or up to Inuvik. I am planning on lots of liquid sunshine though!

I'm headed up to Deadhorse myself, arriving on July 8th. Have a fun, safe trip. And pictures would be great too.
