Cold Sounding for Late March

Here's a trace of the temperature in the lowest 1000 meters from the sounding from the Fairbanks Airport Tuesday afternoon. This is quite a cold profile for this late in March (technically, 1000-850mb thickness 1192 gpm and 850 mb temperature -26.9C). Of course there's no afternoon inversion; too much solar gain for that.
Temperature held in the single digits in the valleys, and never got above zero above 1500'MSL, which highs of +5F at Fairbanks Airport, -2F here at Keystone Ridge and -5F at Munson Ridge, at 3100'MSL south of Chena Hot Springs.
