Chilly on the North Slope...but...

Low temperatures Saturday morning on the North Slope were nearly or a bit below zero, including zero at Barrow, 2 below at Kaktovik and 8 below at Anaktuvuk.

How unusual is this? Not at all. Over the past 50 years, the average date of the last zero temperature in the spring at Barrow is May 3rd.
