Another Hot Sunday in Fairbanks

A deep storm west of Kodiak Island has brought another Sunday Chinook to Interior Alaska. Here's the 3AM AST Sunday surface analysis from NWS Anchorage:

Temperatures in the valleys rose sharply after midnight, erasing the strong inversion from yesterday and are now near or above freezing at most low elevation sites.

The 340am AST Sunday NOAA-19 Polar Orbiter infrared image shows a classic cyclone structure:

High temperatures through 10am AST include:

Eielson AFB: 39F
Woodsmoke PWS: 38F (near North Pole)
Two River PWS: 38F
UAF West Ridge: 35F
Fairbanks Airport: 34F
