1. Glasgow MT had a 5 second wind gust of 82 MPH during the evening of July 3rd, 2000. This 82 MPH thunderstorm wind gust broke the old record gust of 76 MPH set in August 1997. The maximum five second wind speed is a fairly new reporting phenomenon and only began back in 1995.
1. None reported yet.
1. Thick Smoke over Fairbanks, AK. Dense smoke from forest fires will linger over the Fairbanks area. Although smoke from forest fires is seen in interior Alaska every year, the extent and density of the smoke makes it an unusual event. The smoke has been prevalent in the region during the first week of July 2000 and no relief is in site. The combination of light winds and continued forest fires means more smoke in the region. The smoke will be most dense in the late night and early morning hours and lift somewhat in the afternoon.
