Anchorage, Alaska: The Coldest Summer Ever?

From: Anchorage Daily News, Gloomy summer headed toward infamy — CHILLY: Anchorage could hit 65 degrees for fewest days on record,  July 24th, 2008

The coldest summer ever? You might be looking at it, weather folks say.

Right now the so-called summer of ’08 is on pace to produce the fewest days ever recorded in which the temperature in Anchorage managed to reach 65 degrees.

That unhappy record was set in 1970, when we only made it to the 65-degree mark, which many Alaskans consider a nice temperature, 16 days out of 365.

This year, however — with the summer more than half over — there have been only seven 65-degree days so far. …

In the Matanuska Valley on Wednesday snow dusted the Chugach. On the Kenai Peninsula, rain was raising Six-Mile River to flood levels and rafting trips had to be canceled. …

Unless we get 10 more days of 60-degree or warmer temperatures, we’re going to break the dismal 1971 record of only 46 such days, a possibility too awful to contemplate. …

70-degree days. So far this summer there have been two. Usually there are 15. Last year there were 21. In 2004 there were 49.

75-degree days. So far this summer there’ve been zero. Usually there are four. It may be hard to remember, but last year there were 21. In 2004 there were 23.

  1. It’s getting colder, not warmer. Global Warming is a hoax to bring our economy down. Those involved with this fraud should be sent to Antarctica to live. If Gobal Warming is real, they should eventually have nothing to worry about. If it’s not, we won’t have to worry about them!!!
