Storm moves in

After a weekend that featured the Interiors first hard frost, mother nature has another trick up her sleeve.

The National Weather Service is warning of a new storm that is moving in from the west.
This latest weather system is tied into a winter storm that is expected to bring 4-8 inches of snows into the Brooks Range above 2000 feet. So hunters need to be aware of this danger.
According to Bob Fischer from the National Weather Service, the storm will begin in earnest this evening in the Fairbanks area with heavy rain that could amount to a couple of inches by midday tomorrow.
Strong gusty winds will also be a threat for possible power outages.

"We're expecting an inch and a half to two inches of rain by tomorrow morning. That's going to start bringing the rivers up, and we plan to issue a flood watch for the Upper Chena river later today.

I think we're going to see winds rapidly increasing late tonight, probably southwest winds, 20-30 mph in the valley locations with some gusts up to 40 miles per hour."
Hunter are advised that snows, rain and gusty winds could be very dangerous, so use extreme caution.
