Like most late summer heat, Sunday's record event has been quickly replaced by more seasonable weather. Freezing level at 6200' this morning, down from nearly 13,000' Sunday afternoon. The Munson Ridge SNOTEL, at 3100' south of Chena Hot Springs, was 40F at raining this morning, while here at Keystone Ridge, 45F, light rain and in cloud at 8am. Even Fairbanks International made into into the 40s. Combined with the increasing colors in the birch trees and the first end of nautical twilight since late April last night, NOW it's starting to feel like Autumn.
