FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Parts of Interior Alaska experienced warmer-than-usual weather Wednesday, with Fairbanks setting a record high for the day.

The National Weather Service in Fairbanks says that according to its records, only six days in the month of December have been warmer than the 45 degrees recorded on Wednesday.

Weather service meteorologist Scott Berg says the previous record for Dec. 30 in Fairbanks was 35 degrees, in 1982. Berg says the normal high temperature for the date in Fairbanks is 3 degrees.

High temperatures in the 20s are forecast for the rest of the week.

Snowfall for the month of December has been minimal so far and well below normal, though Berg said late October and November were snowy.
