The weather forecast calls for more abnormally warm conditions across Alaska. National Weather Service Meteorologist Nick Schwartz, says the persistent balmy pattern is the result of a large ridge of high pressure that continues to ride along the west coast of the lower 48, all the way up into eastern Alaska.

Fairbanks, AK - Two years ago, one biologist set out to try and count the number of shorebirds that migrate to and from Alaska each summer. The data collected in conjunction with the National Park Service the will help wildlife managers track bird reproduction and survival rates.

It’s not quite clear how many birds flew north to Alaska this summer, or any other summer prior.
