Sunny...But not Much Warming
Courtesy of Alaska Climate Research Center
The sun is getting higher each day but still is not high enough to do much to break the surface inversion. The webcam photo from the Alaska Climate Research Center on UAF West Ridge was taken at exactly solar noon. 2pm temperatures are in the 20s and 30s below in the lowest areas, including 30 below at Woodsmoke, 27 below at Goldstream Creek and 23 below at Fairbanks International. In contrast, higher elevation temperatures at 2pm include 6 below at Keystone Ridge and 4 below at Wickersham Dome and Clearly Summit.
