Cold April Morning

Fairbanks-land awoke Saturday to the coolest weather this late in the season in several years. A decent pressure gradient across the Interior kept winds blowing in some valley locations overnight, but where winds dropped off temperatures dipped well into the teens below. But hey, with more than 14 hours of sunshine to enjoy, I'm not complaining.

Lows Saturday morning included:

Goldstream Creek: -16F
Eielson AFB: -18F
Fort Wainright: -14F

Valley locations where winds persisted were notably milder:

Woodsmoke CWOP:  +1F (near North Pole)
Mile 42 Steese Highway: -2F
Fairbanks Airport: -3F

Higher elevations were mostly breezy and nippy:

Keystone Ridge: -3F
Wickersham Dome: -5F
Cleary Summit: -5F
