Early season Heat

Bettles set a new record high Saturday with a high of 83F. Tanana reported a high of 89F but that may be bogus: the highest hourly temp was 84F. Fairbanks had 86F, not a record.

Here on Keystone Ridge, the high of 83F is the warmest of record in 15 years of obs, and the low was only 64F, also a new record for May here.

Cooler today as the thermal trough as re-centered over the northeast Interior and a southwest breeze has developed. This has the added benefit of clearing out all the smoke, at least for the time being,
