Prince Rupert benefits from a mild temperate climate that is typical of most coastal British Columbian communities. The city’s northern location often keeps the temperatures on the cooler side during the winter months, however it is rare to see them drop below 0º C (32º F).

Summer months in Prince Rupert are also very pleasant as the cool breeze off the Skeena River keeps temperatures between 9º C (48º F) in April and 20º C (68º F) in July and August.
