Spring like temperatures have come early to SE Alaska with record breaking warmth over the last few days.
On Tuesday more daily records and even monthly records for maximum temperatures were set. Sitka broke the all-time March maximum temperature 2 days in a row, reaching 67° yesterday.
With more cloud cover over the northern half of the Panhandle this morning, temperatures will have to work hard to break records today.
The southern half will have the best chance of breaking more maximum temperatures today. We are watching the mercury rise over the Panhandle today, with much anticipation.
The Spring Equinox will occur at 5:58 pm tonight. This makes for an equal amount of day and night, as the sun is directly above the Equator.
