High-temperature records fell as the sun rose over Juneau this past weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
The thermometer measured 49 degrees on Sunday and 50 degrees on Saturday, setting records for those dates. Saturday was the second time this year that the thermometer reached 50 degrees in Juneau.
Sunday’s broken record was 48 degrees, set in 2005; Saturday’s previous record was 48 degrees, set in 1981. On Monday, Juneau fell one degree short of a third record-setting day. The record was 47 degrees, set in 1998.
Continuing clear skies over Southeast Alaska allowed Juneau to also set a record-low temperature early Monday morning, as the thermometer dipped to 25 degrees, beating the 28-degree figure set in 1974.
