Most valley locations that had yet to have a freeze finally got one this morning. The low temperature of 32F at Fairbanks International Airport ties for the second latest first freeze of record. The low of 30F at UAF West Ridge is the third latest of record (since 1949). Here on Keystone Ridge, close, but no cigar, so far. Low was 34F, with some frozen rain on the car. However, the first freeze here has been later than September 25th three times since 1996.
