Alaska - Another Climate Record

Alaska has just logged another record - its earliest 70 degree day.

Parts of the state have had their earliest 70-degree readings on record. Klawock, a town in southeastern Alaska, reached 70 F on March 19 -- the earliest any spot in the state has hit that high. 
More records are expected to be broken this weekend, with temperatures soaring as much as 50 degrees above normal in the fastest-warming state
Meanwhile, Northeastern cities such as Boston are still awaiting a 70-degree day more than a week after spring officially began.

Hey, Toby. I just did a post on what's in store for us this summer and over the next few years. For us that's four more years of record heat and, of course, more wildfires.

For you and me and the rest of us out here that means it's time to start getting ready for what's coming.
