A warm up on the way but not near last year’s record breaker

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Anchorage saw a high Sunday of 57 degrees Fahrenheit. The normal high is 65F degrees and the record is 81F which was set last year.

Summer 2019 was a summer of record breaking temperatures. Between June 28 and July 8, eight of those ten days broke high temperature records (see below), including the warmest ever temperature in Anchorage of 90F degrees in July 4, 2019.
