Warmer Weather on the Way
The inversion was only moderately strong on the 3am Friday sounding, but it has since increased: at 11am AST, Goldstream Valley Bottom sitting at -10F, while here on the ridge its +23F.
All the numerical models have a major ridge building into western North America, with a prolonged period of southerly winds aloft over mainland Alaska.The model plot is from the GFS valid Wednesday morning. Looks like we are going to have to turn the refrig back on!
