Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska, USA, reached a temperature of 32 degrees Celsius on the 4th, the highest in 50 years.
The Arctic Circle spans Alaska. Local residents wear woolen jackets and knit hats in the summer of last year. They have to apply sunscreen and parasols this year.
Some meteorologists believe that Alaska was unusually hot this summer, partly affected by the ridge of high pressure and on the other hand by climate change.
