Winter storm for Fairbanks

Travel advisories issued

A winter weather advisory was issued on Sunday for Fairbanks, Alaska, and areas to the east. Up to 3 inches of snow was expected on top of several inches of wet, slushy snow that fell Saturday. Another 2 inches of snow was expected on Monday.

Travel advisories were issued for the Elliott Highway, the Dalton Highway, on the Alaska Highway from Delta Junction to Northway, and on the Richardson Highway. Chains were highly recommended.

Please note that this was a WINTER advisory even though it is still fall.

  1. This is simply the new normal being fed to the people. Just as AGW is to “climate change”.Now, when it snows in what would usually be defined as early fall. It’s now called a winter weather advisory. Soon enough fall will be redefined as the period between September 22nd to October 1st. Lol.

    • That far too late, autumn in the mid/north of the UK started at the being of September and leaves began to turn, admittedly UK had a warm September due to favorable winds from the south – very nice, caused by a meander in the Jet stream. However, many people commented that the Sun felt watery or weak in its out put, many suggested it felt like late October. The growing season in parts of the US was logged as 134 days, and as the Solar Minimum advances and the growing season reduces further, snow during the second half of September at medium altitude in the NH may become a regular occurrence.

    • And Steevo, what’s also puzzling to me is what the wife and I have been seeing on the Discovery Channel. We’ve been watching shows like “Alaska the Last Frontier” and “Ice Lake Rebels”. These shows have been depicting the extremely warm winter that occurred this past winter season. It’s a sobering sight to see all the early ice and snow melt that’s been occurring up there and makes us wonder how this all ties in with an oncoming Ice Age.

      • I must apologize for asking the question concerning the warmth in Alaska which I made earlier in this post. Here’s why… I just read a statement from Dr. Norman Page where he comments on the link concerning Kansas’ third shortest growing season. Below this link Dr. Page quotes from a thirty year climate forecast made back in June 2010. Here’s the portion of that forecast which covered my question…
        “We might expect sea ice to increase in the Antarctic but in the NH the Arctic Oscillation while bringing cooler temperatures further south may also occasionally bring warmer air into the Arctic with possible relative loss of sea ice in that area during those years.”
        This information more or less answered the question I had on the warmth Alaska experienced last season. So again I apologize for sending my previous question before seeing Dr. Page’s post.
