Near Record Cold January in the Works
Here's an updated plot of daily mean temperatures thus far this winter (through January 23rd). The winds and clouds the past few days have kept temperatures up near normal. Through Monday (the 23rd), the mean January temperature at the Fairbanks Airport is -25.0F. The rest of the month looks to average at least this cold, and probably colder. This will be one of the coldest Januarys of record.
