The latest heat wave to bake a part of the globe is underway in Alaska where several locations, including Anchorage, broke single-day records for high temperatures.
According to the National Weather Service (NWS), Anchorage had its first-ever recorded temperature of at least 90 degrees on Thursday, breaking the previous record of 85 degrees, which was set 50 years ago.
The #4thofjuly2019 was one for the books. Several ALL-TIME high temperature records were set at official observation sites throughout Southern #Alaska. But that’s not all…there were more daily temperature records set too! #AKwx #ItsHotInAlaska pic.twitter.com/GxcdUaD9ld
