    Well to be fair, Anchorage merely yields records >1952; not extensive in the slightest.

    Impressive nonetheless.

    Sorry for the late correction, but the NOAA readings for June 1915 ultimately disprove Anchorage's so-called "record":

    The readings were held at Merrill Field Airport—refer to the value column.^ What is also plainly evident, is that myriads of stations across Alaska registered >90° F readings.

    Merrill Field Airport lies just about as inland as the modern Ted Stevens Airport does; farthermore, >90° F was also registered in 1931.
