The unusually warm weather is expected to give way to more seasonal temperatures. National Weather Service meteorologist Don Aycock in Fairbanks says an upper level low moving down from the North Pole is forecast to spread frigid air into the interior by the holiday weekend.
Aycock says cloud cover should keep temperatures from really plummeting. He says moisture spread up from the south will also give the interior some snow.
Ayccok says snow is expected today and Friday. So far December has been one of the three warmest on record in Fairbanks. Through Dec. 19, Fairbanks temperatures averaged 16 degrees above normal. Aycock says colder temperatures over the next week will help average things out for the month.
