Packwood Weather & Climate

Mount Rainer weather patterns are strongly influenced by the Pacific Ocean, elevation, and latitude. The climate is generally cool and rainy, with summer highs in the 60s and 70s. While July and August are the sunniest months of the year, rain is possible anytime, and very likely in spring, fall, and winter. The weather at Mt. Rainier is very changeable. Snow will remain at the 5,000 to 8,000 feet elevation well into mid-July. Visitors are advised to have extra clothing, rain gear, and a tent for protection against storms anytime of the year. Some of the greatest seasonal snowfalls and snow depths in the United States have been recorded on the slopes of Mt. Rainer. @
