Climate records indicate the Fairbanks area has shifted wetter over the last 5 years. Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy climate specialist Rick Thoman says the multi-year trend is record breaking.

"We are now at the wettest five-year block in the climate record, for our area.”

Thoman says the statistic is being driven by more extreme rain and snow events.
