Alaska Winter Storm Warning

Remember, Last month was the hottest July ever recorded in Alaska?

Alaska Winter Storm Warning
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
Aug 20 2019

Northeastern Brooks Range above 2000 feet-Including Anaktuvuk Pass, Atigun Pass, Galbraith Lake, Sagwon, and Franklin Bluffs


Heavy wet snow expected. Plan on difficult travel conditions. Total snow accumulations of 4 to 6 inches expected.

Snow will develop this morning, then become heavy this afternoon through late tonight. Snow will taper off Wednesday morning.

Significant reductions in visibility at times. Below 2000 feet, only 1 to 2 inches of snow expected.

I guess that August will not be the hottest month ever in Alaska.

  1. That hottest July temp was at the Anchorage International Airport, where the thermometer is surrounded by acres of cement with hundreds of large jets arriving and leaving. Everywhere else in Alaska was much cooler.


  2. Perfectly normal weather for northern Alaska. When I lived in Fairbanks, first frost was in late August, just about now!
