Another Day, Another storm

Another deep storm, this one in the southwestern Gulf of Alaska. The Ocean Prediction Center analysis had it as a 944 mb center at 10am ADT ; the 6pm ADT GOES-11 IR image shows a very tight circulation center south of Cold Bay. This storm will move into the northeast Gulf of Alaska in a couple days, slinging more warm air over the central and eastern Interior. No winter anytime soon.


  1. Surprisingly these storms impact us as well, we are forecasting 20-22 foot swells all the way down here Monday night into Tuesday.


  2. Long distance swells can be fun. I seem to recall that southern California sometimes gets appreciable swells from southern hemisphere storms!
