Juneau breaks 66-year-old temperature record

JUNEAU — The National Weather Service says clear skies caused temperatures to reach record lows across southeast Alaska.
The Juneau airport broke a 66-yearold record for July 12 on Thursday morning, with the temperature falling to 38 degrees. The prior record, set in 1946, was 40 degrees.
The lowest new low, according to the weather service, was 36 degrees, and hit at two other Juneau-area reporting stations and Hyder.
In all, 13 records were set, though some communities, like Juneau, Haines and Skagway, had several reporting
stations recording records.
