Late Winter Action
The third major storm in the past six days is racking the northwest coast of Alaska with blizzard conditions. The surface analysis at the left, valid 3AM Sunday AST, courtesy of Environment Canada, shows the low, weakening rapidly but still potent, along the Chukotka coast.
Here in the central Interior, snow alternating with clear skies has been the rule, though the snow Saturday did not amount to much. Of more note were low temperatures overnight. With a cold airmass in place, higher elevation temperatures were in the teens below and valleys 2o to 30 below.
