A cloudy Saturday over most of northern Alaska.; polar orbiter image from NWS Alaska Region. Here in Fairbanks-land, rain and temperatures in the 30s and 40s. Snow level is above most of the terrain: at 3pm ADT temperature was 35F at both Munson Ridge (3100' MSL) and Caribou Peak (2500' MSL), 39F here at Keystone Ridge (1600' MSL). Rainfall amounts so far mostly in the tenth to quarter inch range. Combined with the golden foliage, it really seems like autumn, though warmer weather is on tap for early next week.
