Nippy Start to April

Temperatures bottomed out as expected Friday morning. Low temperatures in the valleys included:

Fairbanks Airport: -15F
Goldstream Creek: -19F
Woodsmoke: -19F (near North Pole)
UAF West Ridge: -9F

Lows mostly just above zero at higher elevation, including+3F here on Keystone Ridge. As usual this time of year, the air mass will quickly moderate, so after a chilly night tonight, temps should be back to near or slightly above normal.
