The following records have been set at the Fairbanks airport:

Through 10am AST total rainfall: 0.73 inches; second greatest winter rainfall of record (0.99 inches Jan 20, 1937) and these two events are the only occurrences of more than half an inch of rain November through March (observations since Sept 1904)

24 hour rainfall 5am Monday-5am Tuesday: 0.66 inches; this is the greatest 24 hour November rainfall of record

Precip total for Nov 22 of 0.50 inches (not 0.54 inches) is a record for the date. Previous record 0.21 inches in 1925.

The November maximum 24 hour precip record was not broken; still 0.84 inches set Nov 27-28, 1970.
