Expires 8:00 PM EDT on October 16, 2017


... Strong storm possible Tuesday and Tuesday night...

A storm located 600 miles north of Barrow will move south tonight
and Tuesday. There is very cold air associated with this storm,
and as the storm moves over the open water it is expected that it
will strengthen rapidly and bring heavy snow showers and strong
northerly winds with it to the Arctic coast from Barrow west on
Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. Since this low is coming from
an area with few weather obervations, there is some uncertainty
on its strength and location. This means that there is a possibility
that this storm could also impact the Prudhoe Bay area and Brooks
range Tuesday night. There is also a small chance for high surf
from Barrow west Tuesday night and at Prudhoe Bay early
Wednesday, but great uncertainty about the surf due to the
uncertainty of the storm strength and track.
