An unusually strong high pressure system has began to intensify over mainland Alaska.
Along with ample sunshine, this weather pattern will usher in some of the warmest temperate seen in recent years. This includes locations from the Kenai Peninsula to Anchorage and all points northward.
The national weather service forecast office in Anchorage, says that daily high temperate will reach into the 80’s at many locations.
These temperatures are unusual in South-central Alaska, individuals planning outdoor activities should plan accordingly, not only for the heat, but for potential rises in river and stream levels due to increased snow melt at higher elevations. .
