The advantage of going south to north is that you will gradually move from greater to less civilization.
If you fly up to Alaska and head south, you will be plunged rather quickly into some pretty remote terrain.
That said - there is a weather feature that some may not be aware of. Precipitation.
Rain increases in coastal areas in August - dramatically by September. Then turns to snow.
Speaking of coastal areas -
One option is to take the Yellowhead Highway out to Prince Rupert -
Then take the Alaska Marine Highway through the Inside Passage -
Where you can stop over on some of the islands if you wish.
Taking the AMH allows you to spend more time in the Yukon and Alaska -
Or you could use it to make a grand loop.
