It hasn't really been continuously warmer than normal for the last three months in Fairbanks, it just feels like it. Note temperatures are in degrees C; image from the Climate Prediction Center. With the lack of precipitation, radiational inversions are helping keep valley based temperatures closer to normal than the overall airmass, i.e. hill temperatures are running even more consistently and farther above normal than this plot would suggest.
