Near Zero in the Lowlands

Now that there is a thin but continuous snowpack, the inversion growing season is well underway in Fairbanks-land. Clear skies overnight allowed temperatures to dip to right around zero in the colder low spots. Some minimum temperatures Friday morning included

Woodsmoke CWOP: 0F (near North Pole)
Goldstream Creek: +2F
Eielson AFB: +6F
Fairbaks Airport: +11F

In the eastern Interior there were a couple of subzero reports:
Circle Hot Springs: -2F
Chicken: -2F

With a fairly mild airmass in place, the hills were no where near as cold:

Keystone Ridge: 20F
Parks Highway RWIS: 21F (at FNSB boundary)
Cleary Summit: 23F
