Dramatic Dry Push
One of the more dramatic chinook-forced dry lines that I recall moved through Fairbanks on Friday afternoon. Note that sharp drop in dew point between 21 and 22 UTC (1 and 2pm ADT) and the spike in the winds. There was even one lightning strike just south of Livengood in the leading edge of the dry line.
