Not much windwith these highs. look at an isobar chart. Most of the wind is along the converging line along the coast. Palmer area had 60-80 alonf with an wildfire Wind pushing flames among housing. Luckly damage kept to minimim. Hp readings so far are around 30 in/hg but this week with projections of the highs building you should see some creep p towards the 1050 markthen aviations will switch to VFR rule below 10k,
Has there been a lot of ice fog in these really cold temperatures of late in the interior? It sure has been pretty windy in places at times, which obviously can keep a check on ice fog formation. So it has gotten below 50 below before the end of November, what will that mean for the minimum temps for December in the coldest spots in the interior. What kind of barometric pressure readings have you all been getting in this cold air?
Well the temps for the interior finall tanked into the 50 below range. Chicken, Ak hit 52 below last nigth ad more cold to come as High pressure settles in.
inds where hitting 100 knots yesterday durning this storm that headed for east coast
