Weird weather was reported in Alaska over the weekend.

On Saturday, Anchorage set a daily record high temperature of 45 degrees at 3 a.m. Then, later that day, a daily record of 8.3 inches of snow was reported. That broke the 1958 record by 1/10 of an inch.

The National Weather Service said southeast winds blew warm air into the city before the winds subsided, temperatures dropped and snow fell.

Nearby Eagle River was hit hardest by the snow, where 12.2 inches was measured.

The snowfall comes after an unseasonably warm fall, according to the Anchorage Daily News. Anchorage and other cities had record-breaking temperatures in late October and the warm weather continued into November.
