Average Annual Precipitation for the Yukon
The tables below give yearly averages for rainfall plus snowfall at places in the Yukon. Each place has a total for how many days of wet weather it usually gets a year and for the normal amount of precipitation.
The calculation of days only includes the days when precipitation totalled at least 0.2 millimetres (0.008 inches). The annual amount of precipitation is an average of weather data collected during 1981 to 2010.
This section covers places along the Alaska Highway, from Watson Lake at the east end where the highway first enters the Yukon from British Columbia, west to Beaver Creek near the Alaska border.
Central & Northern Yukon
Places in the Central Yukon are reached from the Klondike Highway, starting with Lake Laberge near the highway's south end, northwest to Dawson City. From the Klondike Highway, Faro lies east of Carmacks, while Mayo is northeast of Stewart Crossing. Old Crow, a village north of the Arctic Circle on the Porcupine River, is the Yukon's northernmost settlement.
