Return of the Heat
There is going to be a lot to talk about today, but for starters, overnight lows at elevation and breezy spots widely in the 60s overnight. THE Antler Creek RWIS, between Healy and Denali National Park was 70F at 5am with winds gusting to 35 mph. The low of 59F at Fairbanks Airport was one degree above the record high min of 60F set in 1974.
Fairbanks 850mb temp at 12Z +15.2C, 500mb height 578dm, freezing level 11.4K. No records but getting close.
