Alaska hits 70 degrees in March for first time ever

Alaska set a worrisome weather record Thursday as the air temperature at a location in the northernmost state exceeded 70 degrees Fahrenheit during the month of March for the first time.

A report in the Alaska Dispatch News said that the temperature at Klawock Airport, which is on Prince of Wales Island in the southeast region of the huge state, hit 71 degrees.

The article quoted a University of Alaska-Fairbanks researcher’s comments indicating that Alaska’s previous March record of 69 degrees occurred in 1915.

The National Weather Service confirmed that today’s temperature at Klawock Airport set a record.

Alaska has had an unusually warm winter, with multiple locations on the Last Frontier reporting record high temperatures throughout the season.
