elevated surf again Wednesday afternoon into Thursday. Northwest
winds of 20 to 30 mph will move over the Western Seward

The West Coast of Alaska between Point Hope, the Bering Strait
and St Lawrence Is will have snow squalls Wednesday through
Thursday and cause 4-6 inches of snow along with brief periods of
low visibility in snow and blowing snow.
