Alaska, A Rare High Temperature In The USA
Recently, many countries and regions around the world have experienced high temperatures. On the 4th local time, the highest temperature in Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska, USA, exceeded 32 degrees Celsius, setting a record for the past 50 years. Some meteorologists believe that Alaska was unusually hot this summer, on the one hand by the ridge of high pressure and on the other hand by climate change.
According to the Associated Press, the central and southern parts of Alaska have been warmer for five consecutive weeks than in previous years. Among them, Anchorage's highest temperature on the 4th reached 32.22 degrees Celsius, breaking the high temperature record set on June 14, 1969: 29.44 degrees Celsius. The average temperature here on July 4 of last year was only 23.89 degrees Celsius.
The meteorological department said that the other three regions of Alaska: Keene, Palmer, and King Salmon Village have a maximum temperature of more than 31 degrees Celsius on the 4th, or set a new record, or the same as the record.
The Arctic Circle spans Alaska. Even in the summer, local residents often wear thick jackets and knit hats. Most people do not have air conditioners or fans in their homes. This year, they have to apply sunscreen, bring umbrellas.
