Mount Shasta Weather & Climate

The Mt. Shasta/Mt. Lassen region has a climate that varies greatly depending on the elevation. Generally, the area experiences a distinct winter, spring, summer and fall. The seasons are somewhat influenced by the Pacific Ocean. It always snows in the area, and winter temperatures can become quite cold. Usually, however, the snow melts quickly at lower elevations, with daytime highs in the mid 20s to mid 30s range. In summer, temperatures can reach 100 degrees, but that is rare. Highs are normally in the 75 to 85 degree range with cool nights. Most precipitation is received October through March. On the mountain summits, snow falls every month of the year, and even in the driest summers, glaciers remain on the north slope and large snow packs are visible from every viewpoint. On Mt. Shasta, the exposure to storms from the Pacific, plus its elevation, results in high winds and heavy snow accumulations.
