The Interior Alaska town of Chicken wins the winter prize as the first locale to hit 50 below zero this winter.
While Chicken recorded minus 52 this morning, Tok came in at minus 46, with Eagle close behind at minus 44. At the Fairbanks International Airport, temperatures of minus 28 were recorded Thursday morning.
