The Big High

The record strong high aloft 3AM AST Tuesday centered in the Chukchi Sea just offshore of Point Hope. 500mb heights this morning include

Barrow: 577dm
Kotzebue 582dm
Nome 582dm

All records.

In Fairbanks-land, winds picked up here on Keystone Ridge late Monday evening and the temperature jumped to 26F. The wind did make it down to the valley floor in some places, but not the Airport, where the high temperature the past day has been 1 above.
