The nearest weather station for both precipitation and temperature measurements is WEST GLAC which is approximately 13 miles away and has an elevation of 3,154 feet (4,868 feet lower than Sperry Glacier). Because the nearest station and this geographic feature may have differences in elevation and topography, the historic weather at the two separate locations may be different as well.
