Warm air working northward

The warm air that's been over Fairbanks-land since New Years day is gradually making it down to the ground in the northern Interior. Temperatures Tuesday morning are in the mid 20s to lower 30s in the central Brooks Range valleys, and even on the Yukon Flats, the temperature has popped up where the wind has made it down to the valley floor. This is graphically illustrated on the NOAA-19 POES infrared image from 357am Tuesday. Some late morning temperatures include:

Coldfoot: 25F
Prospect Creek: 30F
Fort Yukon: 21F

The Circle Hot Springs area shows a nice inversion:

Circle Hot Springs CWOP: 22F
Central: +3F
Birch Creek RAWS: -5F
