With Alaska in the midst of a truly unprecedented heat wave that's driven by the climate crisis, according to experts, Anchorage—the state’s biggest city—reached an all-time high temperature of 32.2°C (90°F) on July 4th, 2019.


Anchorage reached 32.2°C just hours after the city hit 31.6°C (89°F), shattering the previous high of 29.4°C (85°F) set in June 1969, as reported by the Anchorage National Weather Service.









The record heat forced officials to cancel planned 4th of July firework celebrations because of wildfire concerns. The Alaska state fire marshal had already banned the sale and personal use of fireworks throughout much of the state because of the unusually hot weather.


According to the Times, temperatures could rise even higher.


“This is unprecedented,” said Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz. “I tease people that Anchorage is the coolest city in the country—and climatically that is true—but right now we are seeing record heat.”

News of Anchorage’s record-breaking heat came after data from the U.N.-backed Copernicus Climate Change Service demonstrated that June 2019 was the hottest June ever recorded.
