The Alaska Snowstorm of 2016 is almost upon us, and it’s the kind of snowstorm that only happens on a few occasions every year.
This year, however, it has already turned into the largest snowstorm in the state’s history.
A massive plow has cleared snow from the mountains of Alaskas capital, Fort Nelson, as well as parts of the city of Fairbanks.
The plow cleared snow in the towns of Anchorage and Fairbanks, and parts of Fairview and the towns that surround it have seen even more snow.
Snowfall totals in the area range from a little over one foot to several feet.
Anchorage has seen a lot more than its fair share of snowfall, with more than 1,300 inches.
In Fairbanks alone, about 6 inches fell on Tuesday.
Alaska’s snowpack has not been this full for a long time, with a total of less than 1.6 inches in the past 25 years.
Alaskans are accustomed to a full year of snow in Alaska, and that has made the snowstorm even more unique.
This year, it was an unusually warm winter in Alaska.
Temperatures hit around 70 degrees Fahrenheit on Tuesday, which was the third-warmest day on record in the entire state.
The average temperature in Alaska was around 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
This is the first time in 25 years that a year with such high temperatures didn’t lead to record snowfall totals.
It took over two days for the snow to clear.
The snowstorm also took out power lines and power poles.
The city of Anchorage had to be evacuated as a precaution after a power line was damaged.
The weather also didn’t help the local economy.
According to the Anchorage Daily News, “It is expected to be one of the coldest and snowy winters on record, and one of only three snow storms in Alaska.”
It’s also been the lowest snowfall in Alaska since the 1800s, when the state was at the end of the ice age.
The city of Alsip, Alaska, saw its largest snowfall of the year on Tuesday morning.
The area had about six inches of snow on the ground and over four feet of snow.
The town of Fairmont also saw its highest snowfall ever on Tuesday at about eight inches.
The snowfall is just the latest in a long string of snowfalls in Alaska this year.
In May, an average of 6 inches of rain fell in the Alaskan state on average.
That’s about the same amount as New York City saw on Monday, and just below the record snowfalls of the 1960s.
