Temperature in Anchorage, largest city of Alaska, recorded a record high of 32 degrees Celsius when heat waves hit several states in the United States to spans the Arctic circle.

The phenomenon forced the fireworks scheduled on July 4 to be canceled, following the possible risk of forest fires due to extreme dry temperatures, due to the prevailing temperature conditions in Miami, warning the region vulnerable to climate change.

“At 5:00 pm (local time), Anchorage International Airport recorded its first temperature record at 32 degrees Celsius,” wrote the National Weather Service (NWS) on Twitter.

The highest recorded temperature was recorded at 27.7 degrees Celsius, in June 1969.

“Extremely hot weather is caused by ‘high pressure giant ridge above us,” NWS meteorologist Bill Ludwig told local media outlet.

Earlier Alaska had broken down the temperature record during the summer, especially in the Arctic zones which are very sensitive to climate change.
