Well, spring was a nice day yesterday hope you folks get some warm sunshine soon.
Okay lets try spring again, maybe it will stay above -0- until next winter
Dat look nice sunny day in fraudbanks!
Well on second thought maybe it doesn’t look like spring.:)
Yup – it’s spring
Looks like Spring is on the way
Does anyone know what the place is at the left of the cam, that sits back and has the small parking area? Is it the BACK entrance of a business from the other block?? Just curious. Seems I saw tables sitting out there last year as if it were a dining area.
That would be River City Espresso.
Thank you Winston!
Thank you Winston! The Google map was a nice touch too! Hadn’t thought about that!
Is this cam on the Lathrop building? I used to work at a tv station KTTU/KATN on the forth floor of that building on “scenic” 2 street.
It is not as white as i expected!
I lived in Fairbanks for 28 years. Won’t say how long ago I left 2nd ave. has not really changed that much. I did notice though there are no street lights, unless they are just not visable via this camera. Is there a reason there are no street lights?
Just a different design that what you are used to…see the round milk glass colored light on the corner?
There are street lights, they are the fancy antique white ball type. They upgraded them a few years ago. You can see them in the pictures.
Great cams! Keep ‘em coming. Love how they are virtually streaming…..
Wow! The view tonight is clear as a bell! Gorgeous!
Wow…..First time I’ve seen that many cars to the left of the screen! Guess everyone is home for New Years Day!!!
Happy New Years All!!!
Enjoying looking at this site throughout the day. Daughter is moving up there in about a month from Vermont (actually, she just finished school in Wyoming). Hope it warms up some!
Summers in Fairbanks are the best in the nation!!!
Wow! The fog is clearing a bit – looks so much better – even if the temp is only marginally up
Cold and dark this afternoon. Think safe, Fairbanks.
Look at the snow on the parked cars
What a beautifully, clear view tonight! Nice that the temperature has risen to around 0 – fog and deep chill, gone….for now.
The temperature downtown right now is -29F it is usually warmer than the airport which is the coldest spot in town. Downtown’s temps are usually 5 to 10 degrees warmer. Area observations have the College at -31F The Geological center at -33F and the airport at -34F Sky Flight is the warm spot at -19F. I love this shot of the area, you can really see quite a bit of the city.
I’m curious as to what the building is in the foreground, that’s set back from the others…looks like an eating establishment, maybe?? Also…the Goldrush…looks like a jewelry store…is that what was the OLD Goldrush Saloon from many years ago?? I seem to recall it being near the Co-op.
I don’t remember what the building you are refering to is. I might if I could see 3rd avenue. The old Goldrush was across the street next to the Silver$ one of the 2 (can’t remember which) conected in the back to the French Quarter which faced 1st avenue.
The old Goldrush saloon was downtown either on 1 st, 2nd or maybe even 3rd. Been over 40 years since i was there. My cousin, Wayne Hartzog took me “bar hopping” the day I turned 21 and his sister-in-law worked at the Goldrush, as a bar tender. I remember they has sawdust on the floor!
Son is stationed at Wainwright for next 3 years so this helps me with time of day and actual climate. I go to Weatherbug to keep up with the temp on my iPad. Thank you for the webcam.
This is a wonderful view of the downtown area. I’m sure you get tons of visits, most folks just don’t leave comments. So I hope you don’t remove this camera just yet!
Another great view of Fairbanks – thanks!
Love this!! Glad to see new cams around Fairbanks! Brings back a lot of good memories! I worked at the old FCH back in the late 60′s and around ’70…lot different now!!
