Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage, reporteda maximum temperatures of 32.2 degrees Celsius in 2019, the highest on record. Although Alaska has had extreme cold weather in recent times, it has been less and less cold in recent years.
In Anchorage, for example, between 1952 and 2000, there were 12 nights in the region where temperatures were not below minus 60 degrees Fahrenheit (about minus 15 degrees Celsius), but in 2019 there will be nine nights above minus 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
In Fairbanks, Alaska, there were a dozen days of minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit a year in the 1940s and 1950s;
So far, the state’s 2019 record has broken the 2016 record, making it the warmest year on record.
At the same time, Arctic ice is shrinking, with the International Arctic Research Centre saying the Bering Sea’s ice cover is only a third of the average between 1981 and 2010.
