It’s certainly been a cold month in Alaska’s largest city located in the south-central part of the state. In fact it’s been colder than Barrow, located on the Arctic coast.

Average temperatures at this time of year is around 65-66° and no day thus far in July has hit those ‘average’ values. The high on July 11 was a chilly 56° and the following day it was an even chillier 54°. Both these numbers are the coldest on record for the month. Not only is the month running way below normal but it’s running 1.5 below the lowest average temperature on record, though there’s still half the month to go, unless a sudden warm up takes place, this month could well become the coldest July on record. Averahe so far is 52.7°. All the average temperature for the entire month would need to stay below is 54.4° to make it a new record. The old record was set back in 1920.
