Unseasonably hot temperatures will continue in Dillingham the next several days. A high pressure ridge is stuck over interior Alaska, according to Mike Ottenweller, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Anchorage.

"After a little bit of an easterly wave yesterday, we're seeing things continue to amplify and strengthen out over the mainland today and really through the weekend.   The sunny and warm conditions are expected to persist at least through the weekend and likely into early next week as well," said Ottenweller.
