Temps in August can usually be in the 70s, keep in mind that 70s up there is warmer than in the lower 48. I know this sound stupid but when my mom told me that I laughed...She got the last laugh, it was hot. No problem for mosquitos for me anytime I have been up there. They talk about them being the state bird but I dont remember 1 single bite and here in Minnesota they love me. Rainy season is pretty much all summer although on our last cruise we only had rain in Skagway. The first cruise we didnt have any and the 3 times I have been at my cousins in Anchorage there has been a little but that terential downpours. Have fun, you will want to go back. We are taking our 3rd cruise up there in 2008.
