Official Warmth

The National Weather Service has officially stated what many Alaskans already suspected: 2014 was the warmest year on record for the state of Alaska. The figures are based on data gathered from close to 200 stations around the state.

McGrath, Nome, Kotzebue, Bethel, Cold Bay, King Salmon and Homer all saw their warmest year on record in 2014. Fairbanks saw its 4th warmest year on record, as well as its wettest summer.

In one of the most surprising stats, Anchorage for the first time on record, did not see the temperature drop below zero for the entire year!

That’s just crazy talk…
