The capital city has racked up its seventh record-high temperature this month as warm, sunny weather continues in Southeast Alaska.
According to the National Weather Service, the thermometer reached 51 degrees on Wednesday at Juneau International Airport. That broke the old record of 50, set on that date in 2006 and 1990.
So far this month, Juneau is averaging 38.6 degrees, more than five and a half degrees above normal for March. The warmest day so far this year was 53 degrees, seen Monday.
The Weather Service office in Juneau is forecasting clouds and some rain to return over the weekend and early next week, but by Wednesday, a long-lasting “Omega Block” pattern will bring an extended amount of sunshine and warm weather again.
