6pm Saturday webcam photo from Barrow. Surf's up and a fresh dusting of snow. West wind gusting to 40 mph and pack ice hundreds of miles north and northwest. Note the seaward berm the city has plowed up. Coastal Flood Warning in effect until 6am Sunday.
The 10am ADT Saturday surface analysis from Environment Canada shows the storm northeast of Barrow and the high building across the northern Siberia coast into the Chukchi Sea. This is a classic set-up for Barrow coastal flooding.
