JUNEAU, Alaska -- Juneau could see record high temperatures this weekend after a string of abnormally warm days that have left some residents grumbling about the heat.
National Weather Service meteorologist Rick Fritsch says daytime highs this week have run as much as 10-14 degrees above normal at the Juneau airport. He says normal temps for this time of year are around 62 degrees.
Fritsch says Juneau could see record temps this weekend. Saturday's record high at the airport is 83 degrees, dating to 1969, while Sunday's is 82 degrees, dating to 1948.
Fritsch says the warm weather is due to a thermal trough that's also triggered thunderstorms in other parts of southeast Alaska.
The forecast for the next two weeks calls for above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation for Juneau.
