Arctic heat wave could result in summer-like warmth for Alaska

A high-pressured western ridge has positioned itself near Alaska, allowing record-breaking warmth from the North Pacific to spread over the Arctic. A ridge, in weather terms, is defined as an elongated area of relatively high pressure extending from the center of a high-pressure region. Climate scientist Zack Labe told Euro news this phenomenon could cause temperatures to rise over 10°C above average in some areas of Alaska, making the climate feel equivalent to late-summer. Labe believes this pattern will likely slow the progression of sea ice refreezing in the western Arctic.
