If it seems like summer this year has been unseasonably cold, well, that’s because it has been.
The 90-day period from May 1 to July 29 saw the lowest daily high temperatures on average in Juneau since officials began keeping records in 1943, according to National Weather Service data.
“The average high this year so far is about 4.4 degrees below normal over those 90 days, which is pretty significant,” said NWS meteorologist Richard Lam.
This year, the average high temperature over that 90-day period was 55.9 degrees Fahrenheit. On average, it is 60.4 degrees.
