Alaska’s Brooks Range and North Slope prepare for first significant snow

Written by on August 11, 2017 in Summer 2017, United States of America with 0 Comments

Snow is not uncommon during the month of August in Alaska’s high elevations and this weekend looks to see the first significant snowfall over primarily the North slope and Brooks range in the north of the state. A low is currently developing along the tail of a southbound cold front and this opens the door to arctic air spilling south. Wind associated with the low could present blizzard conditions in some areas.
