Warmest Five Days of Record in Fairbanks

For the first time ever, Fairbanks recorded five consecutive days with minimum temperatures of 65ºF or higher (June 24-28). As a result, the five day running mean temperature for this period, 77.1ºF is the highest 5-day mean temperature ever recorded in Fairbanks.

Here's a plot of the daily temperature (and 1981-2010 normals) so far this year:
Here's the daily and 5-day standardized anomalies:
So, the current hot weather is as "anomalous" as the cold weather in the spring, having now exceeded three standard deviations from the 1981-2010 normal, though the duration is not as long (thus far).
