So Nice for so Long, But Temps Turn in Fairbanks
Fairbanks area residents might be thinking the weather quickly went south.
FAIRBANKS- Fairbanks area residents might be thinking the weather quickly went south.
After months of unseasonably warm temperatures and a lack of snow, the city had its first measureable snowfall on Tuesday.
The National Weather Service says that will be followed Wednesday night with Arctic cold.
Temperatures are forecast to dip to minus 4 degrees. It's likely the first night this season that people might have to plug their vehicles into engine block heaters.
The service says temperatures should warm up by the weekend, but with it will be "active winter weather" - code for significant snowfall.
