Winter hasn’t hit Kodiak yet. Unusually warm weather took down a 27-year-old record on Thursday when temperatures reached 59 degrees.

Measurements taken by the National Weather Service show Kodiak broke the record at 4:36 a.m., said Ray Miller with the National Weather Service in Kodiak.

The previous record for Nov. 14 was 54 degrees set in 1986.

The National Weather Service said to expect warmer than normal temperatures to continue through the rest of the week, although records are not expected every day.

Miller said there is a small chance of snow on Sunday night in Kodiak.

“There might be a slight chance of snow on Sunday evening, but that’s where we’re going back and forth on whether or not we’ll get anything,” he said.

If Kodiak receives any snow Sunday, it’s not expected to be much.
