Snowy February in Fairbanks

February 2018

February was unusually snowy in Fairbanks, with 23.4" (59.4cm) falling, all during the last two and half weeks of the month. This was more than twice the normal snowfall and enough to rank as the sixth snowiest February in the past century. As is often the case, snowfall was significantly higher north and west of town, with the higher elevation Keystone Ridge cooperative station reporting 38.6" (98.0cm) of snow during the month.
