Now That's a Front
You say it must be getting on towards autumn when Rick starts putting up upper air plots? Well…
A well marked but essentially dry cold front moved through the Fairbanks area Friday mid-morning. We don't often see temperatures this time of year cooler at the surface at 3pm than at 3am in the absence of rain. The 850mb temperature was right at freezing at 3pm, not quite a record but still impressively cool for the first week of August.
