Juneau had the second warmest summer on record in 2013. The average high temperature for June through August was 66 degrees. The warmest summer was in 2004 with an average high temperature of 68.6 degrees. National Weather Service Meteorologist Richard Lam said the high temperature average for June through July is 62.9 degrees.

Juneau had four days with highs in the 80s this summer. Lam said the warmest day was June 16, which hit 85 degrees.

“It’s nothing spectacular,” Lam said. “It’s a normal variance.”
