Above-average temps persist in parts of Alaska


by Your Alaska Link News Team

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Forecasters say much of the Alaska mainland will continue to see above-average temperatures through next week.
The National Weather Service said Sunday that highs in the Anchorage area could potentially reach the mid-40s later in the week.
Reports say that 2014 hasn't brought the frequent cold outbreaks that typically filter down from the high Arctic in the winter. Forecasters say the region is in an unusual pattern that is bringing weather from the south. The Weather Service says there will likely be more rainfall in the coming week for coastal areas.
Typical mid-January temperatures in the Anchorage area would have highs in the 20s.
