FAIRBANKS — Fairbanks residents might actually be able to see costumes worn by children trick-or-treating this Halloween instead of heavy coats and boots.
The city might not have any snow on the ground for Halloween, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Tuesday.
National Weather Service meteorologist Rick Thoman said that has only happened once, in 1938.
“It’s always tough to get past Halloween without snow,” Thoman said. “We’ve come close a bunch of times but we’ve only got the cigar once.”
