No end in sight to cold snap
FAIRBANKS (AP) — It appears there is no end in sight for the frigid weather gripping Fairbanks.
The National Weather Service says overnight lows of 35 degrees below zero are expected through the end of the week.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://is.gd/r5ax32) reports that the cold weather is being caused by a pressure system sitting over the Bering Sea and Western Alaska.
The Weather Service says the system is not expected to move during the seven-day forecast.
Forecasters say high temperatures will range from 10 below to 25 below.
The weather service says November was one of the coldest Novembers on record in more than 100 years.
