Warm Equinox

The autumnal equinox occurred at 649am ADT Saturday, but you would not have known it from the  temperatures in the Interior. At Fairbanks Airport, the high of 67F and the low 47F would have been exactly normal for August 14th. Thick cirrostratus covered the Fairbanks area all day, which kept high temperatures down a bit. There were no records set as the 22nd was the last day of the great September 1995 chinook.

Other high temperatures included:

Eielson AFB: 69F
UAF West Ridge: 67F
Aurora: 67F
Fairbanks Mid-town: 67F
Gilmore Creek CRN: 66F
Goldstream Creek: 65F
Keystone Ridge: 61F

Temperatures did nick 70F in the eastern Interior, including 71F at Chicken and 73F at Eagle.
