The brutally cold temperatures that have long defined Alaska were easing across a vast stretch of the Interior on Monday even as the National Weather Service cautioned of the dangers of frostbite from winds whistling over the flats south of Fairbanks.
A wind-chill warning was issued for the Delta Junction area and parts of the Tanana River valley as the state witnessed a return of the sort of weather for which it is infamous.
“2018 was the sixth warmest year on record in Fairbanks, a cozy thought as 2019 starts off well below normal,” the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Friday. By Monday, the newspaper’s Facebook page was posting a photo of a Two Rivers thermometer just north of the city hitting 55 degrees below zero.
