Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The Tanana River is forming frazzle pan ice, the beginning of winter's freeze up. These pans are round because of constant jostling and bumping against each other. Soon they will become large rafts of the pans, and eventually become a solid sheet of jumble ice.

About katy99780


I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
