End of Summer
Summer in Fairbanks ended late Tuesday afternoon when the dry, cloud free cold front blasted thru the area. Temperatures aloft have fallen quite dramatically, and most higher elevations are now below freezing. The low of 29F here on Keystone Ridge is the first freeze of the autumn. Combined with 15 to 35 mph winds, it feels like autumn too.
Meanwhile, most valley locations are no colder than recent mornings, thanks to the breeze and so little inversion. Fairbanks Airport still hasn't been to freezing, though I suspect that will occur this evening.
