Paltry Snow Cover

Here are some snow depths around Alaska the day before Thanksgiving:

Northway: 14 inches
Tok: 14 inches
Chicken: 12 inches
Circle Hot Springs: 12 inches
Eagle: 10 inches
McGrath: 9 inches 
Denali NP Headquarters: 8 inches
UAF West Ridge: 7 inches
Fairbanks Airport: 6 inches
Anchorage: 2 inches
Kotzebue: Trace
Nome: Trace

These amounts are all below normal except for the upper Tanana Valley, which is near or even slightly above normal.


  1. Just looking around AK on the FAA weather and other cams - snow cover everywhere so slight!! Amazing to see bare ground still at Coldfoot!
