Interesting thread here. I love Alaska weather. I have only visited once and lucky me.. it was during the infamous arctic outbreak of January 1989.. who remember's that? The coldest temperature I ever felt on that trip was at North Pole where it was -55F.

Concerning this spell of toasty temperatures, according to data I saw earlier today.. much of the interior and north slope will have below normal temps. settling in early in the week. Frequent showers will result and in Fairbanks you may have highs barely out of the 50's, especially in the hills to the north. Lows mostly in the 40's.
Barrow.. which actually experienced a thunderstorm back on the 10th!! may see some wet snow at times starting Monday. July snow in Barrow; while not a given during this time of year, is more likely than a thunderstorm there. If I remember right, thunder is only experienced once every 3 to 5 years in Barrow.

So if your hankering for some cooler weather, it's coming and will hang around for about a week or so before warmer temps. return. I will gladly trade you for some of that cooler weather with some Oklahoma summer heat!

The high temperatures could also raise concerns about wildfires.
We only advise to avoid physical activity during peak heat times, drink lots of water and watch out for our pets.

We haven't had too many wildfires like previous years, probably because it has been a cool and rainy summer. It started raining yesterday, and the temperature came down to the low 60's. Today its raining, and 60 degrees.

These types of temperatures are normal in the interior of Alaska.

Just normal weather for the interior of Alaska, other than being very wet so far. It usually rains this way in August, but every now and then we get a get summer like this. We have had other summers where the rain turns to snow by September.

New record high for Seward today of 84F. Parts of SE are also near 80, but don't know about any records being broken.

Previous Seward record was just three years old.

Edit: Looks like both yesterday and today are new record highs for Anchorage, and also today for Annette Island.

Must be.

Sure about that temperature? Weather Underground says it was 80 both yesterday and today on Annette.

If their data is accurate, yesterday's high would have broken the old high by 11 degrees.
