We are cruising to Alaska August 13, 2005 on RCL. This is our first cruise. Can anyone tell me about the weather in Alaska in mid August? We have a lot of excursions booked:

Juneau:<] Mt Roberts tramway, Pilot's choice glacier exploration...

Skagway:<] Skagway extravaganza - White Pass and Ukon Railway... Liarsville gold rush trail camp ... Liarsville cook house.... Red onion saloon

Ketchikan:<] Totem Bight and Heritage Deluxe

I always think of Alaska as cold and snowy but I've heard it's in the 60's in August. Will we need to bundle up for the glacier trip? How should we expect to dress for the other excursions? We plan on bringing a backpack with snacks and waterproof rain gear, just in case. Are heavy parkas overkill? Will there be temperature differences depending on which excursion we're on?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
