Temperatures in Anchorage, Alaska rose up to 32 °C (90 °F) on July 4, 2019, breaking the previous all-time record temperature for the city of 29.4 °C (85 °F) set in 1969. The city also broke its daily July 4 record of 25 °C (77 °F) set in 1999.

While normal high temperatures in Anchorage in early July are around 18 °C (65 °F), temperatures are expected to remain above normal in the days ahead.

According to records kept by the National Weather Service (NWS), Alaska is no stranger to the 90s, AccuWeather meteorologist Brett Rathbun noted.

"In fact, way back on July 28, 1919, Fairbanks made a run at 37.7 °C (100 °F) when the mercury topped out at 37.2 °C (99 °F). Fairbanks has experienced 32 °C (90 °F) heat on several other occasions, most recently on August 5, 1994, when it recorded a 33.8 °C (93 °F).

Record-setting heat will continue across Alaska through the weekend, and contribute to a heightened risk for additional wildfires
