Meanwhile, this list appears on the local NBC affiliate's homepage:
12 areas are now under advisories, watches or severe weather warnings.
- Bristol Bay
- Central Interior
- Copper River Basin
- Deltana and Tanana Flats
- Lower Kuskokwim Valley
Anchorage, the Mat-Su Borough (north of us), and the Kenai Peninsula (south of us) were under a "red flag warning", with warm/dry/windy conditions leading to extreme danger of wildfires, until midnight. Since it hasn't rained, it's hard to understand why the warning is no longer in effect.
Nobody's objecting to warm, sunny weather, though. After an Alaskan winter, most of us crave the long hours of our summer daylight. Gotta get that Vitamin D, ya know.
