Cold Persists near the Alaska Range
Unlike the Fairbanks area, clear skies have prevailed near the Alaska Range for past 36 hour. Here's the 1pm photo from Denali National Park right near the train station. The lack of clouds have allowed the cold temperatures to persist. At the Denali Park AWOS (partially visible in the photo just beyond the brown building), the high today was 20 below and low 36 below. At the DVCA2 RAWS, which is near the Wilderness Access Center and at a slightly lower in elevation than the AWOS, the high was -27F and the low -38F.
