It’s warmer in Alaska than it is in Mississippi this morning

Looking for a little warmth this morning? You might try Anchorage, Juneau or even Nome, Alaska.

Mississippi residents woke up to temperatures several degrees lower than many temperatures throughout Alaska.

While residents in Greenwood were shivering at 17 degrees, Anchorage commuters were waking up to a balmy low of 31 degrees. Other low temperatures in Alaska this morning include 44 degrees in Juneau and 23 degrees in Nome.

Many Mississippi towns broke records for low temperatures set in the early 20th century.

National Weather Service weather stations in Tupelo, Greenwood, Greenville, Tupelo and Jackson set record lows — some of them previously recorded in 1907 and 1911.

As the morning progresses, the National Weather Service in Jackson expects that things will begin to warm up. Although still below normal, highs today will be in the upper 40s to lower 50s.
