Fairbanks First Measurable Snow
I had not posted on this before due to conflicting data, but now this has been cleared up. The first measurable snow for Fairbanks was on Thursday, October 13th, with 0.1" of snow. This is two weeks later than the mean first measurable snow.
More "significant" snow, i.e. several tenths of an inch, fell early Sunday morning. Here is the 1030am ADT view from UAF West Ridge,from the Alaska Climate Research Center Webcam.
