JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Fifteen daily rainfall records were broken
Monday in southeast Alaska, and five records were set for the
coldest highs.

Not all those records were in different communities; for
example, the National Weather Service says Haines and Juneau had
several reporting stations posting new records in both categories.
Two sites in Sitka broke rain records.

Rainfall totals ranged from 2.02 inches at Snettisham to 0.6
inches at the Skagway Power Station. The high temperature only
managed to reach 52 degrees at Point Baker and the weather service
office in Juneau. The normal high for that day in Juneau was 64
degrees.

t's the continuation of a soggy, cool summer across the region,
which meteorologist Tim Steffen attributes to the position of the
jet stream.
