The northern hemisphere continues to experience an unprecedented heat.
The temperature in one of the coldest places on Earth has hit a record high yet again.
Alaska hit 32°C in July 2019
According to Earth Observatory by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), cities in Alaska have been breaking the historical records of the daily high-temperature.
On July 4, an Alaskan city called Anchorage hit 32°C.
The usual daily high is 17°C during this period.
The city once hit 29°C 30 years ago.
Anchorage also had six consecutive days when the temperature exceeded 26.7°C.
Extreme heat sparked wildfires
With erratic weather, cities in Alaska have been troubled with forest fires too.
There have been 38 large fires as of July 9 in Alaska.
The heat has caused lightning-triggered fires in areas such as Fairbanks and Koyukuk Wilderness to spread quickly.
As a result, air quality and visibility have dropped due to smoke and air particulates.
