FAIRBANKS- Fairbanks is closing in on a seasonal heat record.
The temperature of 88 degrees on Monday means the city has reached 80 degrees or higher for the 29th day this summer. The record is 30 days of 80 degrees or higher, set in 2004.
Forecasters say there's a good chance the record will be broken in the next few days,
depending on cloud cover.
To put it in perspective, Fairbanks has an average of 11 days a summer when temperatures reach the 80-degree mark.
Temperatures are projected to cool off a bit next week, but there's still no rain in the forecast.
