A Little Below Normal in Fairbanks

Here's an update on daily temperature anomalies in Fairbanks. Although it's cooled off quite a bit in the past week, as the plot below shows it's only cooled to close to normal: every day between July 22 and August 20th had a daily mean temperature at or above normal.
The 5-day running mean standardized anomaly plot really highlights just how unusually warm it's been and how "normal" it is now:
There is a frost advisory in effect for Saturday night and Sunday morning for low-lying areas, but again this is perfectly typical for the last week of August.
