...Windy With Snow and Blowing Snow Sunday Night Into Monday...

A storm moving north over the Chukchi Sea Sunday night and Monday
is expected to bring strong southerly winds along with snow and
blowing snow to the Western North Slope of Alaska from Point Hope
to Utqiagvik from Sunday night into Monday. South winds could gust
between 30 and 50 mph and there could be near blizzard conditions
in snow and blowing snow. Snow fall amounts of 1 to 6 inches are
possible, with the heaviest amounts near Point Hope and in the
Western Brooks Range. The strongest winds and lowest visibility
are expected late Sunday night into Monday.

There is still much uncertainty on this exact storm track,
so forecasted conditions could change.
