The Alaskan Wilderness of Juneau
By: Matt C, Emily, and Abby
Hello, welcome to the Weather Forecasters, here is our daily smore for you. Today the 20th of May here in Juneau at 6:34 a.m., we are experiencing cold weather at freezing point, 32º F with no wind chill. It’s partly cloudy with scattered patches of fog, and sunshine peeking through at places. We’ve have had 0.00” of precipitation here but the barometric pressure is surprisingly a 30.51 with 100% humidity because of the large amount of water vapor in the air. The ground is glazed with a thin layer of ice, but there is no dusting of snow. What an odd day! We can see mostly Cirrocumulus and Stratus clouds from our Weather Forecaster Station. Grab your hats, gloves and a toasty, warm cup of hot chocolate and prepare to snuggle up, because this is going to be a mildly cold and murky day!

This is what it looks like in Juneau during the wintertime. Ponds are frozen over and trees have a nice dusting of snow.
This is Alaska's Mt. McKinley. It is the highest point in Alaska at 20,320 ft. above sea level.
In the summer, Juneau is full of life, including these baby bears.
