Fairbanks Digs Out of Storm

Dan Bross, KUAC – Fairbanks

Fairbanks is digging out after a two-day storm that dumped over a foot and a half of snow. National Weather service meteorologist Ted Fathauer in Fairbanks says the blizzard was one for the record books.

The heavy snow fall gave way to high winds yesterday that caused drifts, closed roads, toppled trees and obscured visibility.

Fathauer says the forecast calls for another round of precipitation and high winds, and that could eventually translate into more snow in the interior.

Fathauer says big weather events tend not to double up, and he doesn’t expect another major snow storm.
