All Time Weather Record! (yawn)

Minor News sez: The high temperature at Fairbanks International Airport on Tuesday was 32 degrees, which was the lowest high temperature ever observed on May 1 in Fairbanks.

Lowest high temperature evar!

Also, also!

It also was the lowest high temperature observed in the month of May since 2001 when the high temperature was 31 on May 3.

Although cold, the 32-degree reading Tuesday was not even close to the all-time record low high temperature for May of 17 degrees on May 2, 1945. The all-time record low temperature in May is 1 below zero on May 9, 1964.

The high temperature today is expected to be in the 40s. The average high temperature for this time of year is 55 degrees and the average low is 32.

Temperatures will gradually warm up the next few days, with highs in the 40s today and into the lower 50s Friday.

You know, in case you were wondering.
