The weather can change rapidly in Nome. In the fall it is always a good idea to dress in layers, temperatures can range from the 40’s to the 60’s. A warm jacket, hat, gloves, scarf, and warm socks are all basic gear to bring with you. A comfortable pair of walking shoes are also handy and if you are hiking bring an extra pair of socks, the tundra can be marshy and your feet might get wet.
