Love your layering look on cold beautiful spring days

Springtime in Alaska is below freezing

Two weeks ago temperatures were around freezing and it was warm enough to go to work in the outfit shown below. Last week we had temperatures as low as 0F (-18C). The weather reminded Alaskans that Alaska has only summer and winter, sort of. Spring in Alaska means below freezing temperatures.

Leopard print looks great with red

Here I wear again a cardigan as a top with another cardigan on top to build an appropriate insulation layer. I love the combination of leopard print with red. Thus, I put my suede leather skirt on. Well, I have to admit that it also was sort of windy. At least what an Alaskan living in the Interior thinks it is windy. The suede leather skirt is a great way to keep the wind from reaching the skin.

In the Interior June is the windiest month

In Interior Alaska, the month with the highest average wind speed is June with just a little more than 3m/s. We sometimes get strong wind when a low in the Gulf of Alaska is in the right position to produce the Tanana Valley wind due to channeling of the wind. Other strong wind events are related to storms entering the Interior from the Bering Sea. These storms also bring a lot of snow and often outages because of  trees that fell in the power lines. Last winter some households were without electricity for nearly a week after a Bering Sea storm. In summer, strong wind typically can be associated with gust fronts of thunderstorms.
