Confidence is growing in a strong warming event that could hit Alaska towards the end of January. (combined with extreme cold weather in the Central-Eastern US) All caused by the break up of the polar vortex which has been pretty well-behaved this winter, until now. Changes are coming. Best get in your winter activities now.

Of note: Haines is currently predicted to be right under the axis of high pressure, which could mean we stay cradled in between the zones of warmth to our west and cold to our east. That would be best case scenario for our snowpack. Either way, things are going to get interesting for North American weather over the next several weeks.
