After a record-setting heat wave dried out a good portion of Alaska, a small tease of rain on Friday helped Anchorage break a 24-day dry spell. With more rainfall over the weekend, we've officially received more rain in the past few days than we did the entire month of June.
#Anchorage ended its streak of 24 consecutive dry days this morning when 0.01 inches fell between 8:40am and 9:21am. That tied for the 12th longest streak on record of those that occurred during part of the Jun-Aug months, & was by far the warmest of the 12 (by almost 5º).
Rain started falling in Anchorage around noon on Sunday. While wet roads and gloomy skies might make it seem like a significant amount of moisture fell, the day closed out with just 0.05 inches of rain.
