Nunavut Weather

Nunavut is a vast territory - most of it located above the Arctic Circle - and can experience great variations in the weather.

The spring and summer seasons are the best time to visit as temperatures on Baffin Island can reach 54°F (12°C) and on the mainland, up to 75°F (24°C).

Springtime is March to June and summer months are July and August. Winter can begin as early as September and it's not uncommon for ice to begin freezing in October.

The winters can be severe. In the community of Grise Ford, the northernmost location, January temperatures average -31°F (-35°C). A combination of low temperatures and strong winds can cause hazardous conditions throughout the entire territory in the winter.
