McKinley, Anchorage, Seattle and cruising the Inside Passage Southbound.
Thanks so much for your help!
Dress in layers. If you're flying, save the airline fees, pack lightweight clothing and wear your heavier stuff on the plane.
Figure out your excursions. If you are planning on a glacier trip, it would obviously be colder there than your hotel or port.
Do what I did. Visit a famous weather website and type in your destination(s). Since you're going next year at least you can check to see what the weather is now (or when you plan to be there) at your destinations this year.
Plan on wind, rain, and chilly night temperatures.
This helped me with my packing....
