...Strong Bering Sea Storm Wednesday and Wednesday night...

A strong storm will track across the eastern Bering Sea through
Wednesday night. Southerly winds of 30 to 50 mph are expected to
develop during the mid afternoon into the evening. Some high surf
and beach erosion issues may develop from Kipnuk to Goodnews Bay
as a result of these winds. Additionally, the strong winds will
make travel by land or sea difficult. Widespread snow will develop
along and ahead of the front, with 4 to 8 inches of snow
possible. Areas of blowing snow and reduced visibilities are
expected. Some uncertainty exists with the track and strength of
the low and residents are urged to monitor the forecast for future
updates.
