Nippy on the North Slope

Temperatures are in the 40s below on parts of the North Slope Saturday morning, along with a fresh breeze in some places. At 8am AST,

Nuiqsut: -48F, south wind 9 mph
Alpine: -45F, south wind 9 mph
Deadhorse: -45F, southwest wind 13 mph

While plenty cold, this is not all that unusual this time of year for the North Slope.
