Fairbanks above Zero
The temperature at the Fairbanks Airport at 11am AST Tuesday was +5F. This is the first time temperature has been above zero at the airport since 9pm AST December 23. Through 3pm AST it's been up to +15F.
If you're keeping score at home, that's 17 days and 14 hours continuously below zero. That's the longest such streak since Jan 13-Feb 4, 2006.
Here's the 330pm NOAA-15 GOES image showing the storm responsible for the break in the cold weather.
