ANCHORAGE, Alaska — We wouldn't know it by looking outside in Anchorage, with cool crisp sunshine yesterday, but some parts of the state continue to experience unusual winter-like weather.
Southwest is once again starting off the day with light snow. Light snow and flurries and very cold temperatures are gripping the Slope and Northwest Alaska, including Kotzebue and Nome. Glenallen and the rest of the Copper River Basin have had periods of snow this morning. Snow has extended to the Eagle and the Canadian border.
So, it begs the question: What happened to the record warmth and sunshine that had enveloped much of the state over the past weeks?
