Fairbanks hit 89F officially, which was the highest temperature for the Summer of 2021. Seeing 80’s on the North Slope is a bit of a WHOA moment. Not unprecedented, just whoa.
At this stage of the season, only the Aleutians have much of a chance at increasing their number. Fairbanks has already started showing yellow in the hills, and I’m not talking about gold dust.

If only we had been given some sort of advance warning about this.
I dunno, like maybe some people that would dedicate themselves to tracking this issue and point out the folly of our ways so we could do something before it actually happened. You know, like an early warning system?
