Autumn is in full swing across Interior Alaska. Here's a photo from Livengood Monday morning (from the FAA) showing the golds of September.
It was completely clear Sunday night/Monday morning, with an aurora through in for good measure. Throw in a seasonable airmass and not much wind, and it's no surprise that Monday was the coolest morning thus far this early autumn, with a fairly widespread frost or freeze in the valley.
Lows reported thus far include:
Goldstream Creek: 25F
Chena Hot Springs: 28F
Woodsmoke PW: 28F
Eielson AFB: 31F
UAF West Ridge: 35F
Fairbanks Airport: 37F
Keystone Ridge: 41F
In the hills this was not the coolest night of the season; here on Keystone Ridge it was the coolest night in almost a month.
