Damp in the Big Town
Anchorage has evidently set a new record for consecutive days with precipitation: as of today 28 days straight days with a trace or more of rain. I say evidently, as there seems to be some confusion as to whether the NWS Forecast Office at Sand Lake (just south of ANC International Airport) or the ASOS at the airport is the "official" Anchorage site. The Anchorage forecast office thinks they are; NCDC is using the ASOS. In any event, it has been damp in the Big Town. The Fairbanks record is also is also 28 consecutive days.
