Alaska Daily News: Anchorage suffers one of coldest Octobers ever
Anchorage has logged the eighth coldest October on record, the National Weather Service said today.
With an average temperature of 29.7 degrees, October landed a spot in history as one of the 10 coldest out of the roughly 90 years since records have been kept in Anchorage.
The coldest October on record was in 1996, with an average temperature of 25.5 degrees. The 10th coldest was in 1965, with an average temperature of 30.7 degrees.
And, though there’s little snow left on the ground to prove it, the month was also the 14th snowiest on record, the Weather Service said.
