It’s About Time..!!

After the warmest January on record for the Talkeetna area and, indeed, for all of Alaska I was pleased to see the following NWS forecast for Talkeetna posted Saturday, February 8th at 05:00 AKST; it’s about time we saw such a forecast as its one we can live with:

  • Today Sunny, with a high near 6. East wind around 10 mph.
  • Tonight – Mostly clear, with a low around -3. East wind 15 to 25 mph.
  • Sunday – Sunny, with a high near -1. East wind 25 to 30 mph.
  • Sunday Night – Mostly clear, with a low around -5. Wind chill values as low as -35. East wind 35 to 40 mph.
  • Monday – Sunny, with a high near 5. East wind 20 to 25 mph decreasing to 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon.
  • Monday Night – Mostly clear, with a low around 0.
