Alaska sets new December temperature records, U.S.


Temperatures in Alaska are again making rounds in the international news, with several high and low records broken or obliterated.

The temperature at Kodiak Tide Gauge, Alaska hit 19.4 °C (67 °F) on December 26, 2021, setting a new December high temperature record for the state.

This is 11.7 °C (20 °F) higher than the previous high-temperature record of 7.7 °C (46 °F) set on December 26, 1984, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Kodiak Airport registered 18.3 °C (65 °F), breaking its previous monthly record by 5 °C (9 °F).

The weather balloon launched at the same time confirmed these amazing readings, NWS Alaska Region said.

Other high temperature records were set on December 26 across Bering, with Cold Bay registering 16.6 °C (62 °F), breaking its previous daily record high of 6.6 °C (44 °F) set in 1978, 1988, and 1990 by 10 °C (18 °F).

It was the warmest temperature recorded there between October 27 and May 7, so monthly records would've been set in November, January, February, March, and April.

Meanwhile, low temperatures on December 26 dipped to as low as -21.6 °C (-7 °F) with 'much of the Panhandle hovering in the single digits to teens [°F],' NWS Juneau office reported.

"A few new record lows have already been set with more maybe falling this morning," the office said on December 26.

A new daily record low temperature was set in the city of Ketchikan with -17.7 °C (0 °F) on December 26, breaking their previous record low temperature for the date of -15 °C (5 °F) set in 1917.

Their high temperature was -8.8 °C (16 °F), which is also their record cold high temperature for the date.

"The normal high is 4.4 °C (40 °F) and the normal low is 0 °C (32 °F)," said climatologist Brian Brettschneider.

Other locations also broke their daily low temperature records, with Juneau forecast office recording -21.6 °C (-7 °F), Haine#2 -18.8 °C (-2 °F), Klawock airport -16.1 °C (3 °F), Pelican -12.2 °C (10 °F), and Thorne Bay -17.7 °C (0 °F).

  1. Funny how non-scientists who are skeptical of AGW will divine or concoct all sorts of nuttery to explain what has already been explained. The weather is changing because we treat the sky like a toilet. The ice age has been cancelled.

    1. Of course if you think about HAARP and much more Tesla based patents exploited to change and manipulate the weather for military purposes, your amateurism is seen everywhere, you can eat all, what massmedia prepared to you. Rothschild, Rockeffeler and their 911 fellows billionars made a Exit Plan via Musk, Bezos, Virgin Galactic etc. wake up, they only want to save their comfort in Elysium (watch the film). Sustainability as a Justify the Genocide through vaccination (too much people Gates said), but the extinction scenarios are fulfilling (all 500 equations are proof of this) not your words.

    2. It’s rhetoric and insanity like yours that’s keeping people in the dark. If you were a caveman we wouldn’t be at the level of progress we see now. AGW is dead, it’s a hoax to get your dollars out of your wallet. The reason for weather has always been the same reason for millions of years and it’s the sun dummy!!!

  2. I´m not pleased in fact of 4 from 5 extinctions scenarios are fulfilling yet, how I said in 2017-2018.
    1, Overpoling
    2, Brown Dwarf on its way to us and Sun darkening
    3, Super Ice Age
    4, Superexplosion of 30 million km3 methane in Siberia
    3, The warm air will finally divorce the Arctic Jetstream into 2 independent cells, each about 8000 km in diameter. In the middle of arctic eye -92°C, at the outer border -42°C on North the same as in the South. It can continue maximally 21 days to encircle all regions of the Earth and we have the SuperIce Age. You can expect the 15 metres of snow in Great Britain, 10 metres in Berlin, 7 metres in Prague, 20 metres in New York at the beginning. The great Kiss of Winterqueen between 35°-85° North and South wide!
    5, Supervolcanos on the rise and their explosions ??? But overpoling and brown dwarf may deal not with Yellowstone only, what´s you opinion?

    1. It’s already been proven in a great article at Watt’s up with that? All oxygen, gases, co2 and others disperse to the upper atmosphere in a similar pattern that can be observed in a formula. Everything disperses evenly and quickly. Why do you think our ozone layer is perfectly fine now?

      1. 1, I´m not against free energy and carbonless technology, it must be done without Rothschild Khazarian financies and without Rockefeller pharmaceutical petrodollars. Khazarian are luciferian and Moloch, Baal etc. is their god, nobody in 21. century will kill the small children, throw them into fire, make a torture to other humans to take from their bodys Adrenochrom, the beasts and monsters can´t rule this World anymore.
        2, The ozon layer is desperately broken via Chemtrails as a shielding program against
        a, high frequention radiation from centre of Milky Way to hold the people in the negative mind
        b, shield against 5G and 6G radiation on orbital stations, when the Rothschild, Rockefeller and 911 fellow billionars exit from 5G and 6G hell. 60 GHz will kill in 120 seconds every human and oxygen based animals on and under the Surface of the Earth.
        c, the heavy metals – Pb, Al, Ti, radioactive isotope cesium, ruthenium, thorium, Hg etc. are killing all living slow but with good efficiency 99,99% (shielding the Earth from the people, Humanless Earth, Artificial Intelligence only as a full automatical RoboPlanet)
        3, Despite all mentioned before, the warming from the Human carbontechnology is not so deadly as a warming from gravitation temperatures, from Volcanos gass emitting, from Sun Storms and Overpoling. Its the same as a IceAge from darkening of the Sun as a traversal pattern. This named Global Forces are deciding about Human Destiny and have a decisive inflection.
        4, The Chemtrails have a biggest negative influence on warming and weather globally from Human wrongdoing. They are making the atmospherical pressure more higher as normal and military manipulations of weather through HAARP electric infusions into mezo- and stratosphere more anomalies and deadly weather- hurricanes,tornadoes,floods, freezing around -50°C etc.. This disruption must be ended immediately and military programs discontinued.

  3. This happens when you have a strong Meridional Flow causing extreme weather. You can thank a weakened Sun for causing such a dynamic jet stream which has happened thousands of times.
