Sunshine Gaining…but not quite there yet
Here's a plot of the Fairbanks soundings from Sunday and Monday afternoons. The primary item of interest here is that both days featured lots of sunshine and very little wind. Monday especially was almost cloud free. This nicely illustrates that even though the maximum solar elevation is now above 15 degrees, it's still not enough to mix out the boundary layer. Another week to ten days should do it.
