2022 January Monthly Report


A cold start to the year with Arctic air across Alaska, then warmer than average temperatures from the Interior to Southcentral.

A strong wind event in the Matanuska Valley on January 1st and 2nd left thousands without power.

Snow depth and snow water equivalent measurements at the end of the month were above normal across much of the state.

Heavy rainfall during the second half of the month reduced the near record snowpack in Juneau to almost nothing.
