There is already a thread about how cold it gets in AK, so I thought I'd post one on how warm it gets.
I am in south-central Alaska, Seward, right on the coast where the temperatures are moderated by the effect of the Japanese Current: warm water slowly circulating this way from Asia. It never gets REALLY hot here. Yesterday was a gorgeous, cloudless, sunny day here (June 9). By early afternoon, it had hit 78 degrees, in the shade. (And NO 'skeeters or bugs!) Summer is my favorite time of year, so I was a happy camper. Typically, this time of year will range from high 40's/low 50's (cloudy days), to mid-70's on sunny days. I have seen it hit 90 here in July, but usually not more than a couple days out of the entire year.
I have heard it can get a little warmer in the interior of the state, but I can't say for sure, since I've never lived there. Maybe somebody who knows will add to this thread...

SOunds like Sterling was near identical yesterday Bud. Unfortunately I'm hundreds of miles to the north and missed it.

It was low 70's here in Anchorage yesterday, and of course, I was sweating like a hog.

I'm Interior (Bush, off road), and it hit 79 yesterday. Summer temps are usually 60s-70s, sometimes 80s; 90s are a bit rarer. However, it's not uncommon to get a frost at least once during the summer, so temps can get low for a couple of days; this makes gardening a bit dicier, but most things come through OK.

This weekend was perfect, middle 60's and sunshine.
Monday, high of 62, and rain.
Today, more of the same. And rain.

Default Whoa!

Woke up at 6:30 this morning (June 13), peeked outside at the thermometer:
35 degrees!
Pretty cold for this time of year. Sun is out in a fairly cloudless sky, so I bet it will warm up to the 60's-70's today...

That yesterday...in a 24 hour time period...the state of Alaska had a total of 3,189 lightning strikes! Yesterday!
All the red +'s and -'s are where lightning struck!



We may be in the market for fire fighters...
