It's a Cold One…

Corrected old record low at Denali Park HQ.

Fairbanksians tend to be pretty jaded about cold temperatures. Take this morning: the last week of March and morning drive-time temperatures are in the 20s and 30s below. And all you here is "cold this morning, but lovin' that sunshine", as seen in this afternoon view from high atop Ester Dome.

Some lows this morning include:

Denali National Park HQ: -22F new record for March 27; old record -21F in 1938
Eielson AFB: -31F new record for March 27;  old record -26F in 2004

McGrath: -33F (record -37F in 1977)
Fairbanks Airport -30F (record -37F in 1925)

Other lows Wednesday morning included: 
Chicken: -35F
Goldstream Creek: -33F
Tanana -31F
