Delayed “Green Up” in Fairbanks

Fairbanks is still waiting on green up. A somewhat subjective technique, observing a green hue of the trees on Chena Ridge, is used to officially designate the green up date in Fairbanks. The technique has been employed by National Weather Service meteorologists to track green ups in Fairbanks since 1976.
