...Strong Winds and Elevated Surf Saturday...

Elevated surf is expected to develop tonight along the Chukchi
Sea Coast and will continue into Sunday morning. Strong
southwesterly winds will develop tonight continuing into early
Sunday morning. The strongest winds are expected to remain
offshore; however, gusts of 45 mph are possible along the coast.
The strong winds may cause previously shorefast ice to break off
causing the ice to quickly move to the northeast. At this point
the ice movement does not look to cause any major issues to land;
however, it is not out of the question that some ice may wash up
on the shore. Individuals with interests along the coast should
prepare for the potentially elevated surf conditions this weekend
by moving property away from the coastline. Boaters in the area
should be aware of hazardous boating conditions.
