Through November 18th, average temperature departure for the month thus far:
Valdez: +4.9F with a whooping 2.3" of snow for the month!
So for Mainland Alaska, southwest cool, elsewhere mild. A classic El Niño pattern. Except wait, it's a moderate La Niña! Note that Barrow is reflecting the decreased Arctic sea-ice coverage; historically Barrow temps don't show much correlation with ENSO.
