FAIRBANKS — Fairbanks is almost two weeks behind normal for the first snow accumulation of the season, but it’s too soon to tell whether we’ll have a brown Halloween.

If it snowed today — it’s not in the forecast — it would be the third-latest date for first snow accumulation in the past 30 years. If it doesn’t snow until Saturday, it will be the latest start to the snow season since the 1980s.

The short-term forecast doesn’t call for snow in the immediate future, but a high pressure system that’s brought warm sunny weather all week is dissipating and will bring colder weather and a chance of snow, National Weather Service meteorologist Scott Berg said.

“The high pressure lingers, but it gives way to some colder air moving in. We do have a low that will be over Canada, so it kind of squeezes the high pressure out to the northwest over Siberia,” he said. “The low over the Canadian archipelago will kind of spin some cold air down onto the state on Thursday.”

The forecast calls for a low of about 10 degrees Saturday night.

The changing weather isn’t expected to bring a significant amount of snow. The Weather Service threshold for measurable snowfall is one-tenth of an inch.

The overall record for latest snowfall in Fairbanks weather history was in 1918 when the first snow didn’t pile up until Halloween.

This sunny nice weather is fine with me lol..it is kind of weird for it to be cold(ish) with no snow on the ground haha. I imagine it'll happen eventually though :P
