Why Alaska is so cold, but why the weather?

The cold air and cold winds are causing snowflakes to fall in the Yukon, Yukon-Aleutian Islands, and the Nunavut territories, and a storm system has started to move into the area.

According to The Washington Post, a storm has moved through Alaska’s Aleutian Peninsula, moving northwest and forming a “strong but relatively mild thunderstorm system.”

Alaska is experiencing a very cold winter with the lowest recorded temperatures ever recorded, and an area of snow in the north is the norm for this time of year.

The weather system has not yet reached the northern Yukon and the Alaska coast, however.
