...Cold Front Passing Through the Interior Today...
A cold front passed through Fairbanks just before 8 am this
morning, bringing strong gusty winds and some snow showers to the
area. Winds from the west are gusting to 30 mph. Snow showers
will fall off an on through the morning, with less than 1 inch
accumulation in most areas. Snow showers will taper off in the
afternoon.
There may be areas of brief freezing rain on the leading edge of
the front, but any freezing rain would last for only a few minutes
before changing to snow. In the few places that freezing rain does
occur, it will leave just a thin film of ice before being quickly
covered with snow. The chance of freezing rain will end in
Fairbanks by 10 am, while the Yukon Flats including the Steese
Highway north of Fairbanks could see brief freezing rain until
noon today.
Winds will taper off in Fairbanks by this afternoon, while the
Yukon Flats may keep winds conditions through late afternoon.
Windy conditions, combined with periods of snow and blowing snow,
could make travel over the Steese Highway Summits difficult at
times. Travelers over the Steese and Elliot Highway Summits
should expect briefly low visibility in snow and blowing snow,
but conditions should improve by this afternoon when most of the
snow showers have ended.
