Fairbanks Recently Warmer

Posted: 18 Jan 2018 05:41 AM

The featured chart compares daily high and low temperatures between Des Moines, IA and Fairbanks, Alaska since 1 December 2017. The past four days have seen warmer temperatures there than here. During this time of year, such a difference isn't all that rare, but the perception that Alaska should always be colder than we are! Due to large scale atmospheric flow patterns, having very cold weather in Iowa is often juxtaposed with very warm weather in Alaska. Our weather is in the process of warming up and any thoughts of moving to Alaska for warmer temperatures will diminish!
