Oh Interior Alaska, did you think you had finally shrugged off chilly spring weather? Well, nature may have other ideas.

A cold front moving southward will travel through the Interior on Saturday evening, bringing cooler temperatures that may lead to frost in some areas by Monday morning, the National Weather Service said in a special weather statement.

Sunday is expected to bring rain to the Interior, including Fairbanks, Fort Wainwright and Fort Greely, according to the statement.

As those clouds move out of the area, temperatures are expected to dip into the 30s, possibly bringing frost to some lower-level elevations Monday. Spots in the Tanana Valley that are colder — like the Goldstream Valley and North Pole – may see temperatures as low as the upper 20s, the statement said.

"If the clouds persist on Sunday night, temperatures will be slightly warmer," the agency said.
