19.4 C was recorded in Alaska on Kodiak Island, south of the US Peninsula. This heat peak for the month of December is historically significant.
For example, for the first time since 1925, with a minimum temperature of 16.9 degrees Celsius in Perpignan, France is experiencing a spring winter, and there are other parts of the world where the thermometer is warmer this winter.
With nearly 20 degrees Celsius recorded on the island of Kodiak in Alaska on December 26, it is worrying that the region is once again experiencing warmer climates than any other region in the world.
Minimum temperature recorded at 16.9 degrees: From December 1925, Perbignon enjoyed its hottest night.
This new record, now trivial, is by no means part of a series of worrying peaks seen across the American Far North. Eight days above 16 ° C in Cold Bay and 10 ° C in eight days, including Christmas Eve in Unalaska, recorded a record high of 13.3 ° C.
Alaska is warming twice as fast as the world average. From 1901 to 2016, the average temperature in the United States rose by one degree Celsius, while in Alaska it rose by 2.6 degrees.
You should know that December is generally a dry and cold month in Alaska. The weather, marked by icy winds, refers to The Huffington Post.
