    Compliance Concern HOTLINE 855 451 4193 Many have thoroughly enjoyed the casualness of living in Nome Alaska Shirt jeans and tennis shoes or boots are the most common attire throughout the year Only a few roads are paved therefore dust in summer months is quite often an issue hence the need to leave dress attire at home Summer temperatures in Nome are quite enjoyable with averages of 44 F to 58 F Warmer temperatures in the summer can often be found by driving into the country away from the coast A light weight water wind resistant jacket a pair of rain boots and rain coat for the wet days will protect you from elements in summer months It is always a good idea to dress in layers so you are able to easily adjust to the changing temperatures of the day If you plan to hike in the tundra be sure to keep an extra pair of socks with you as your feet might get wet due to marshy conditions Winter months which are long are very different Temperatures average from 3 F to 15 F with wind chills plummeting the temperature as low as 60 or colder Please take
