Today's RAOBS series show only a little bit of cooling at the surface between 3am and 3pm, but more substantial cooling above about 200 meters above the valley floor. Winds here at Keystone Ridge have diminished quite a bit; my neighbor recorded a peak wind of 35 mph Tuesday evening, just before 8pm. Models are forecasting quite a bit of cooling aloft over the next couple of days. I'd guess that Fairbanks International may see the first 40 below of the season sometime late Thursday night or more likely on Friday.
