Record High Temperatures

Here's the METAR plot from 10am Sunday observations: a wind shift just came through Fairbanks: the surgace front is probably lagging a bit behind.

For climate sites that do not have records going back to the great December 1934 Chinook appear to have set or tied new December high temperatures. The following are all preliminary and subject to revision:

Eielson AFB: 48F (47F on Dec 24 1985)
UAF West Ridge: 45F (44F on Dec 24 1985)
North Pole current record for December is 47F

other daily records:
Fort Greely/Big Delta: 51F

Other high temperatures:
Rex Brige RWIS: 49F (Mile 276 Parks Hwy)
Mile 42 Steese Hwy: 47F
Nenana Hills RWIS 44F (at FNSB Borough Boundary on Parks Hwy)

Also of note:
Antler Creek RWIS (south of Healy) peak wind 81 mph at 505pm Saturday Dec 03
