First Zero

I may start posting these NWS-Fairbanks information statements regularly, as they often provide nice summary tidbits, and those not on Twitter may not always see them.  (Note that the temperature later dropped to -4°F, -20°C, at Toolik this morning.)

...Fall Arrives In Northern Alaska With Below Zero Temperature...

The first day of fall, on Wednesday, was greeted by a temperature of 1 degree below zero at the Toolik Lake Field Station, on the North Slope of Alaska, just north of the Brooks Range. Toolik Lake was also reporting over 3 inches of snow.


The current webcam view shows some steam fog over the lake, and what looks like a patch of newly formed ice.  What a beautiful scene!
