FILE - People swim and sunbathe at Goose Lake in Anchorage, Alaska on Monday, June 17, 2013. Alaska's largest city and other parts of the state are experiencing a long stretch of higher than normal temperatures. The jet stream, the river of air high above Earth that generally dictates the weather, usually rushes rapidly from west to east in a mostly straight direction. But lately it seems to be wobbling and weaving like a drunk driver, wreaking havoc as it goes. The most recent example is mid-June where some towns in Alaska hit record highs. (AP Photo/Rachel D'Oro)
