During the summer the average temperature is aroung 50 degrees fahrenheit and in the winter the average temperature drops to 26.6 degrees fahrenheit. The highest temperature recorded in a Taiga is 104 degrees fahrenheit.

Average Rainfall:

The Taiga receives rainfall year around and most of it falls during the summer. The average rainfall is 12-33 inches annually.
