The Heat Wave


June 28th proved to be the hottest day of the year so far--from the US National Weather Service in Juneau:

Whale Pass: 91
Beaver Falls Ketchikan: 89
Annette Island: 88
Coffman Cove: 85
Hydaburg: 82
Salmon Landing Ketchikan: 82
Wrangell: 81
Juneau: 81
Hoonah: 81
Klehini: 81

Ketchikan airport reached 82F breaking the old record of 75F set in 1946. Sitka airport hit 75F breaking the old record of 70F set in 1945. For three straight days, Ketchikan Airport has either tied or broken the record high temperature. Yesterday [June 29th] the record from 1992 of 79F was tied. That streak will likely end today as the forecast high is just 69F, while the record for today is 82F.

While we are having a record heat wave, our neighbors in Juneau are having a flood warning:

A Glacier Dammed Lake release has begun from Lake No Lake into the Taku River. Record river stage around 46ft is expected July 1st, exceeding the event in 2004. Boaters on the river should watch out for debris and expect cold water temps.
