... Bering Sea storm to impact West Coast Tuesday night and Wednesday...

A low pressure system passing through the Bering Strait Tuesday
night and over the West Coast Wednesday will produce a period of
strong southwest winds Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The
winds will shift to the west and continue for much of the day
Wednesday and continue through Thursday morning. Southwest and
then west winds 30 to 40 mph with gust to around 50 mph can be
expected Tuesday night and Wednesday along the coast. Water levels
along the coast will rise as the winds push storm surge and
breaking waves on shore. Coastal residents should expect the
possibility of high surf, coastal erosion and minor coastal
flooding beginning late Tuesday and continuing through the
Thursday morning.

South of the Bering Strait... storm surge values will begin to
rise west of Golovin through the Bering Strait Tuesday evening to
the 1 to 3 feet range as well as along the yk Delta coast through
Wednesday morning. As a strong front front passes over the coast
Wednesday morning winds are expected to switch to a westerly
direction and water levels are expected to rise rapidly especially
over eastern Norton Sound where storm surge values are expected to
reach 3 to 5 feet above normal tide levels Wednesday afternoon
from near Stebbins north along the coast through Unalakleet and
Golovin. Highest storm surge values are expected to reach 5 to 6
feet in Norton Bay Wednesday evening. Highest storm surge values
are expected to reach the 4 to 5 foot range near Nome late
Wednesday morning.

North of the Bering Strait... storm surge values are expected to
increase rapidly as winds shift to the southwest early Wednesday
morning to westerly Wednesday afternoon. Storm surge values in the
2 to 4 foot range are expected to impact the north coast of the
Seward Peninsula west of Cape Espenberg especially near Shishmaref
Wednesday morning. Storm surge values in the 2 to 4 foot range are
also expected along the coast north of Cape Krusenstern with a 2
to 4 foot storm surge expected at Kivalina and Red Dog dock
Wednesday evening. Winds will shift to the west Wednesday
afternoon with storm surge values expected to rise rapidly to the
3 to 4 foot range above tide level over eastern Kotzebue Sound
including Kotzebue and Deering.

Model guidance on this potential storm continues to converge on
storm track, strength and timing, however subtle changes in storm
track and strength will have significant impacts on the timing and
location of high surf and potential coastal flooding conditions.
Coastal residents should continue to monitor the situation for
updated forecasts and potential warnings.
