ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Cooler than normal temperatures have been a consistent feature of the weather over Alaska in the past month. The weather pattern currently in place shows little change in the coming week. A broad trough of low pressure stretches from the Aleutian Chain to the Gulf of Alaska and is the primary weather-maker and driver into next week.

Some parts of the state will see warmer temperatures, so that is a small improvement.

Southeast Alaska will see temperatures in the 60s for daytime highs on Thursday. And Mat-Su Valley locations will see warmer temperatures when clouds break up a bit into the afternoon Thursday.

Interior Alaska was in the 70s and seeing temperatures closing in on 80. The warm and dry conditions prompted a red flag fire weather warning from Denali Park, Parks Highway, and Alaska Range.

Hot spot for today was Eagle with 79 degrees. The cold spot was Utqiagvik with 28 degrees.
