Record Warmth at Barrow
Barrow has been remarkably mild this month. The high temperature Sunday of 66F was a new record high for August 19th. The low temperature of 48F was not only a record high minimum for the date but the fifth of the past six days to set a record high minimum. At the left is a plot of daily temperature extremes this month, with the 1981-2010 normals for comparison. During the past week low temperatures have been consistently running above the normal high, always a good indicator of extreme warmth.
