Due to its extreme latitude, Arjeplog experiences polar day (also known as the midnight Sun) during the summer. The precise start and end dates of polar day and night vary from year to year and depend on the precise location and elevation of the observer, and the local topography.

In the summer in Arjeplog during 2019, the Sun is continuously above the horizon for 2.9 weeks, rising at 12:48 AM on June 12, and not setting again until 12:41 AM on July 2. As such, July begins the month in polar day, which ends before the month is out.

The shortest day of the month is July 31, with 18 hours, 51 minutes of daylight.

Hours of Daylight and Twilight in July

The number of hours during which the Sun is visible (black line). From bottom (most yellow) to top (most gray), the color bands indicate: full daylight, twilight (civil, nautical, and astronomical), and full night.

The latest sunset is 12:41 AM on July 1 and the earliest sunset is 2 hours, 23 minutes earlier at 10:18 PM on July 31.

Daylight saving time is observed in Arjeplog during 2019, but it neither starts nor ends during July, so the entire month is in daylight saving time.

Sunrise & Sunset with Twilight in July

The solar day over the course of July. From bottom to top, the black lines are the previous solar midnight, sunrise, solar noon, sunset, and the next solar midnight. The day, twilights (civil, nautical, and astronomical), and night are indicated by the color bands from yellow to gray.


We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.

The chance that a given day will be muggy in Arjeplog is essentially constant during July, remaining around 0% throughout.

For reference, on July 5, the muggiest day of the year, there are muggy conditions 0% of the time, while on January 1, the least muggy day of the year, there are muggy conditions 0% of the time.

Growing Season

Definitions of the growing season vary throughout the world, but for the purposes of this report, we define it as the longest continuous period of non-freezing temperatures (≥ 32°F) in the year (the calendar year in the Northern Hemisphere, or from July 1 until June 30 in the Southern Hemisphere).

The growing season in Arjeplog typically lasts for 3.8 months (115 days), from around May 21 to around September 13, rarely starting before May 6 or after June 5, and rarely ending before August 26 or after September 30.

The month of July in Arjeplog is reliably fully within the growing season.

Growing degree days are a measure of yearly heat accumulation used to predict plant and animal development, and defined as the integral of warmth above a base temperature, discarding any excess above a maximum temperature. In this report, we use a base of 50°F and a cap of 86°F.

The average accumulated growing degree days in Arjeplog are increasing during July, increasing by 231°F, from 180°F to 411°F, over the course of the month.

Data Sources

This report illustrates the typical weather in Arjeplog year round, based on a statistical analysis of historical hourly weather reports and model reconstructions from January 1, 1980 to December 31, 2016.

Temperature and Dew Point

There are 3 weather stations near enough to contribute to our estimation of the temperature and dew point in Arjeplog.

For each station, the records are corrected for the elevation difference between that station and Arjeplog according to the International Standard Atmosphere , and by the relative change present in the MERRA-2 satellite-era reanalysis between the two locations.

The estimated value at Arjeplog is computed as the weighted average of the individual contributions from each station, with weights proportional to the inverse of the distance between Arjeplog and a given station.

The stations contributing to this reconstruction are: Arvidsjaur Airport (47%, 82 kilometers, southeast); Jokkmokk (29%, 113 kilometers, northeast); and Hemavan Airport (24%, 130 kilometers, west).

Other Data

All data relating to the Sun's position (e.g., sunrise and sunset) are computed using astronomical formulas from the book, Astronomical Tables of the Sun, Moon and Planets , by Jean Meeus.

All other weather data, including cloud cover, precipitation, wind speed and direction, and solar flux, come from NASA's MERRA-2 Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis . This reanalysis combines a variety of wide-area measurements in a state-of-the-art global meteorological model to reconstruct the hourly history of weather throughout the world on a 50-kilometer grid.

Land Use data comes from the Global Land Cover SHARE database , published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

Elevation data comes from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) , published by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Names, locations, and time zones of places and some airports come from the GeoNames Geographical Database .

We draw particular cautious attention to our reliance on the MERRA-2 model-based reconstructions for a number of important data series. While having the tremendous advantages of temporal and spatial completeness, these reconstructions: (1) are based on computer models that may have model-based errors, (2) are coarsely sampled on a 50 km grid and are therefore unable to reconstruct the local variations of many microclimates, and (3) have particular difficulty with the weather in some coastal areas, especially small islands.

We further caution that our travel scores are only as good as the data that underpin them, that weather conditions at any given location and time are unpredictable and variable, and that the definition of the scores reflects a particular set of preferences that may not agree with those of any particular reader.
