This (Friday) morning 's Polar Orbiter infrared image from 4am shows clear skies over the western Interior, where temperatures are in the 20s and 30s below (-33F at Galena at 8am). Farther east, clouds and temperatures zero to 10 below (-5F at Fairbanks International). Even in a cold air mass, clouds matter.
