70s in Alaska, Northern Canada, Washington State Smash All-Time March Warm Records Before Winter Ends | The Weather Channel

All-time March record highs were smashed in parts of Alaska, western Canada and Washington State in an end-of-winter warm spell that sent temperatures soaring to heights never seen this time of year so far north.

Tuesday’s high in Klawock, Alaska, about 200 miles south-southeast of Juneau, topped out at 70 degrees. While that wasn’t a March record there, it was the earliest in the year any Alaska location had reached 70 degrees by a whopping 12 days, according to Alaska-based climatologist Dr. Brian Brettschneider.
