... High surf possible Sunday afternoon through Monday...

An early season storm will bring persistent west to southwest
winds along the west and southwest facing coasts along the Seward
Peninsula and eastern Norton Sound. High surf is expected to
develop Sunday afternoon and continue through Monday along west,
southwest and south facing coasts as strong and persistent
southwest winds develop ahead of an early season storm moving
northeast out of the northern Bering Sea into the Chukchi Sea.
Small differences in the track of this storm will have a large
influence on storm surge values at a particular location. At this
time the highest surf levels are expected to begin Sunday
afternoon and continue through Monday. Storm surge values of 3 to
4 feet above normal tide levels with wave run up likely reaching
high water line Sunday evening are expected along the coast from
near Nome eastward to Golovin. Storm surge values of 4 to 5 feet
above normal tide levels are expected to begin Sunday afternoon
and continue into Monday from Golovin to Norton Bay to near
Shaktoolik. Storm surge values of 3 to 4 feet above normal tide
levels are expected along the coast from Shaktoolik to cape
Stebbins including Unalakleet Sunday afternoon and continuing into
to Monday. Localized beach erosion will be possible beginning
Sunday afternoon and continue into Monday. Those with interests
along the shore should move boats and other valuables above the
high water line.
