I am thinking about moving to Alaska and would like to live in the inside passage (Juneau) or Haines or in Anchorage. I know you have to deal with cold, rain, or snow (amounts differing depending on where you are). I was curious as to where the least snow and rain occurs. I don't mind the cold so much. I will have a teaching position so am not as worried about income as I know this will give me a comfortable living.

Southeast gets a lot of precipitation, year round as either snow or rain. Anchorage has colder winters. And longer.

Anchorage has less precipitation of the three, but is colder with more snow. Fairbanks is drier than these three but is also the coldest.

I live in Haines for a year back in the eighties. There was quite a bit of rain.

Haines' weather isn't too tough by Alaska standards. Coastal climate means wet and warmer than if you lived somewhere in the Interior. I believe it rains quite a bit less there than most of SE Alaska. Gorgeous place to live.....you've got the waterfront locale plus you can actually take a drive unlike the other coastal towns like Kodiak, Sitka, Juneau, etc. without hitting the end of the road.
