FAIRBANKS - Fairbanks set another record high temperature on Saturday, breaking a mark that was set in 1915.

The thermometer topped out at 82 degrees at Fairbanks International Airport, 2 degrees warmer than the previous record. Fairbanks also set a record high of 79 on Friday. The normal high for this time of year is 60.

Interior Alaska, already under dry conditions, pulled through two days of record-breaking hot weather without a wildfire starting.

The fire service was ready for fire activity, Mowry said, as temperatures climbed on Saturday, hitting a high of 82 degrees at Fairbanks International Airport about 7 p.m. and setting a new record for a high temperature for May 14.

The old record of 80 degrees was set in 1915, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Metzger.

“(Saturday) was the first time we hit 80 degrees this season,” Metzger said.

It was so warm on Saturday that the low temperature, 59 degrees, broke a record too for highest minimum temperature on May 14. Metzger said the previous record, set in 2005, was 52 degrees.

Fairbanks’ low temperature on Saturday beat Chicago’s high temperature of 47 degrees, the meteorologist said.

Wow, 80 degrees in May. I'm glad it cooled off and rained some, especially since there has been so much pollen lately. I went to the clinic to get stuff for allergies and when the doctor looked inside my nose he was like "wow, it looks brutal in there!" It was too swollen to even breathe..luckily the stuff I got has helped some, phew

Yesterday I was talking to mom about how I still feel so much better on the Prozac..she was like "yeah, suddenly just one day it seemed this cloud lifted off you and I could feel your good vibes." Wow. I wish I had gotten help sooner, I felt like a shell of a person, existing but dead inside. It's given me my life back..I'm not sure why Prozac works so well for me when the others didn't, but I'm so happy I found something that works!
