Snowy November in Fairbanks

November 2017

Several significant snowfalls and a host of smaller events pushed the November snowfall in Fairbanks to 24.6" (62.5cm). This is more than 11" (29cm) above normal and ranks as the eighth snowiest November in the past century. As is often the case, snowfall was higher to the north and east of town. The South Fox climate station measured 29" (74cm) of snow for the month, and the higher elevation Keystone Ridge climate station near Murphy Dome recorded an impressive 40" (103cm) of snow during the month.
