Elevated Inversion

Nice example of an elevated inversion this morning, with the really warm air above 400 meters AGL. The difference between the surface and the warmest temperature is 26.2C (47F), which is pretty impressive, though far from any record.


  1. I received report of rain showers on the road between Clear and Fairbanks on the evening of the 26th - would you have expected that - is it that warm around again?

  2. I don't think it would have rained the evening of Jan 26th Alaska Time (below 0F here on the hill by 6pm). Maybe the evening of the 24th (Alaska Time) a sprinkle would have been possible--it was chinooking and above freezing in Denali Park land

    BTW, Belated Happy Australia Day!


  3. Terry: I should have written "evening of Jan 25th". Rick
