Special Statement
Issued: 1:25 PM AKDT Jul. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High surf possible again Sunday afternoon through Monday...

A low pressure system north of Barrow will continue to produce
westerly winds around 25 mph and storm surge values around 1 foot
above normal tide levels through early this evening. High surf
conditions are expected to improve with storm surge values
decreasing and winds diminishing after 6 PM this evening.

Another low pressure system moving northeast out of the Bering Sea
will elevate tides to around 1 to 2 feet above normal tide levels
beginning Sunday afternoon and will continue into Monday morning.
Winds with this next storm are expected to remain offshore from
the southeast to east for much of the storm which will limit wave
runup and high surf impacts along the beach despite the higher
tide levels. As the winds shift late Sunday night and Monday
morning to a northwesterly direction a brief period of high surf
may develop along the coast to the north of Wainwright. The exact
track of this next storm will impact how quickly and how strong
the onshore winds develop and will have a large impact on storm
surge values. Continue to monitor the situation for the latest
forecasts and possible statements or advisories. Those with
interests along the shore should move boats and other valuables
above the high water line.
