3rd Warmest Alaskan June on Record

Posted: July 22, 2013 at 6:34 pm

Alaskans have been feeling the heat this year, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has the numbers to prove it.

 

This year’s June was the third warmest on record, with statistics reaching back 96 years. NOAA says the hottest June ever recorded was in the late 1930′s.

 

The third week in June this year pushed up the combined total, with Talkeetna setting a new record of 96 degrees. Seward also broke its previous all-time-high with a reading of 88.

 

Meteorologists are linking the temperatures with a jet stream moving erratically over the northern hemisphere.

    What is up with the inaccurate or incomplete information and headlines? The headline states the 3rd warmest June on record, line one in paragraph 2 states it was the warmest June. Report on motorcycle accident – 4 days later a report comes out and still does not have name of injured person. Maybe its time to try a bit harder with facts or stick to talk shows, which all 15 listeners enjoy.
