...Unsettled Weather for the West Coast Tuesday Through Friday...
A cold low originating from Siberia will bring in a series of
strong frontal-low pressure systems into the West Coast and
Bering Strait beginning Tuesday. The first low Tuesday will
mainly have impacts for Saint Lawrence Island with snow squalls
and gale force wind gusts from the west. A stronger front moves in
Tuesday night and Wednesday with heavy snow squalls and gale
force west-southwest winds at times. As the low shifts south,
gale force northerly winds gusting as high as 50 mph will bring
heavy snow squalls and periodic near blizzard conditions to the
Bering Strait and Saint Lawrence Island into the weekend. Snow
amounts will range from 2 to 5 inches, heaviest for Saint Lawrence
Island and the southern Seward Peninsula, from Tuesday through
Thursday. After Thursday, Bering strait coastal regions may see
several more inches of snow with the north winds.
Westerly gales will bring elevated waters levels of 2 to 3 feet
above the normal high tide line to parts of the YK Delta Wednesday.
