FAIRBANKS, Alaska — Fairbanks has been known to have snow by September but that's not the case this year.

Temperatures on Saturday and Sunday broke or tied record highs.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1oPOfpR) reports the thermometer hit 76 degrees just before 4 p.m. Sunday. That beat the old record for the day of 73, set in 1938.

On Saturday, the temperature reached 74, which tied the record high for Sept. 13 set in 1965.

A new temperature record was also set Sunday in Delta Junction at 70 degrees.

Normal temperatures for the interior Alaska communities range from the mid-30s to the low 50s.

The National Weather Service says the unseasonable warmth should carry into Monday. Temperatures are forecast to cool Tuesday.
