Cold, Wet Front Drops 3 Inches of Snow On Deadhorse

A cold front is ushering in wet, chilly conditions across much of the state. The Alaska Department of Transportation reported three inches of snow in Deadhorse earlier this afternoon.

National Weather Service meteorologist Scott Berg in Fairbanks is tracking the system sweeping in from the northwest.

Snow is expected in the northern Brooks Range and North Slope through today (Friday). It will remain rain to the south, but a seasonal wakeup call, the first widespread frost is expected across the interior as skies clear tonight and early tomorrow (Saturday).

For much of Southcentral Alaska, temperatures on Sunday morning are expected to be in the 30′s. In the northern Susitna valley, temps could dip into the 20′s.

Berg expects the cool down to continue into next week.

Decreasing daylight contributes to the cooling. Fairbanks is losing more than six minutes of light per day, and Anchorage is losing more than five minutes per day.
