... Cold wave hits interior Alaska...

Temperatures across much of interior Alaska have dropped into the
20s and 30s below this morning with Fairbanks down to 33 below.
Temperatures in Fairbanks are expected to range from 20 to 40
below through the middle of the week... and possibly into next
weekend. Patchy ice fog can be expected this week as well.

A strong inversion has now formed and will become stronger this
week. Ridgetops around Fairbanks will have temperatures in the
teens below over the next several days and then warm slightly by
mid-week.

The cold is the result of a cold Arctic airmass that moved over
the interior last week... combined with strong high pressure that
is now building over the interior and causing clouds to clear out.
The new snow on the ground and clear skies are causing additional
cold air to form and drain into valley locations.
