Fairbanks Finally Gets an Inch
Snowfall at the Fairbanks airport on Sunday was 1.0 inches. This is the first day with an inch or more of snow this season, and three weeks later than average. The snow was classic "arctic front" snow, produce by the lift associated with the eastward push of cold low level air. Here at Keystone Ridge I measured 2.1 inches, and out at Mile 42 Steese Highway, the coop observer reported 2.6 inches.
