Alaska city hits 70 degrees in record heat wave

Baked Alaska, anyone?

The temperature hit 70 degrees in the city of Klawock March 19, the earliest in the season ever. It’s expected to stay unseasonably warm for about a week.

The record reading in the city of Klawock wasn’t the only weather milestone in The Last Frontier state.

In Anchorage, no snow fell in March — for just the second time in history, according to CNN.

The 2018 National Climate Assessment reported found Alaska is one of the fastest warming regions on Earth.

Statewide, temperatures are expected to remain unseasonably warm for about a week, says CBS.

It’s heating two to three times faster than other US states.
