Problems with Interior Temps

Problems with manual obs on Friday: Fort Yukon 104F (FYRA2 RAWS had 86F) and 92F at Chandalar Lake, and 84F at 11am. I don't think so.

The problem at Fort Yukon has been ongoing for months: the AWOS has been out of commission since the comms lines were back-hoed over the winter, and the FAA contractor appears to have a thermometer in the window that gets evening sun. On May 27th Fort Yukon reported a temp of 102F. The RAWS is on the airport grounds, and looks reasonable.
