.SYNOPSIS FOR ARCTIC WATERS...
A trough of low pressure from the Chukotsk Peninsula to north of
the Arctic Coast of Alaska will continue to shift north of the
Arctic Coast into Wed, maintaining current conditions for the
next couple of days. A low over the Sea of Okhotsk will deepen
rapidly as it moves into the Bering Sea tonight and to the eastern
Aleutians Wed. This low will stay south of the Arctic but will
cause winds out of the east to increase later in the week.
