January 14 was an exceptionally mild day over Southeast Alaska, with a number of long term climate sites recording record high temperatures for the month. The NOAA tide gauge at Ketchikan, on Revillagigedo Island, reported a maximum temperature of 67°F (19°C). This is the highest reliable temperature of record in Alaska in January. The Ketchikan Airport reported a high of 59°F (15°C), a daily but not monthly record. The eight degree difference in temperature is due to the Airport's location on the Gravina Island side of Tongass Narrows and the prevailing southeast wind of January 14 kept the airport cooler.
