First 80F Temperature at Fairbanks
The temperature topped out at 80F at the Fairbanks International Airport on Tuesday for the first time this summer. This is a week later than the average date of the first 80F temperature over the past 60 years. Fairbanks has never had a summer in the 106 years of observations when the temperature did not reach 80F, though in 1966 the high temperature for the summer was an even 80F.
