SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
413 PM AKST WED NOV 5 2014

KUSKOKWIM DELTA-BRISTOL BAY-ALASKA PENINSULA-EASTERN ALEUTIANS-CENTRAL ALEUTIANS-WESTERN ALEUTIANS-

INCLUDING THE CITIES OF...BETHEL...HOOPER BAY...NUNIVAK ISLAND...KING SALMON...DILLINGHAM...NAKNEK...PILOT POINT...COLD BAY...SANPOINT...UNALASKA...NIKOLSKI...ATKA AND ADAK...SHEMYA AND AMCHITKA
413 PM AKST WED NOV 5 2014

Today...Nuri is located about 480 nautical miles south of Yokosuka, Japan. The cyclone will quickly move into the North Pacific late Thursday as it moves toward the western Bering Sea. As this happens...the low will undergo a period of rapid intensification. Current forecast model guidance suggests the central pressure with this system drops from around 970 MB late Thursday night...to between 918 to 922 MB late Friday night. This would create a significant event as the current record lowest pressure observed in the Bering Sea is 925 MB measured at Dutch Harbor on October 25, 1977.

WESTERN AND CENTRAL ALEUTIANS

A large swath of hurricane force winds will be possible from Shemya eastward to Adak late Friday and into Saturday. Seas will be building to 40 to 50 feet or possibly higher...due to the combination of rapidly decreasing pressure and high winds. Expect hazardous conditions for all unsheltered marine vessels.

PRIBILOF ISLANDS

Strong southwest winds will impact the Pribilof Islands Saturday and Sunday. High seas of 22 to 32 feet on a persistent southwesterly fetch are expected. Expect hazardous conditions for all unsheltered marine vessels.

SOUTHWEST ALASKA

Minor coastal flooding and coastal erosion may develop on Sunday and Monday as high seas in the southern Bering reach Southwest Alaska. The southwest coast should be monitored for updates.

FORECAST CONFIDENCE

There is high forecast confidence in the overall intensity of the low pressure system. However...there is still some uncertainty as to the exact placement and track of the low as it moves across the Bering Sea. The exact track will be critical in how far east the hurricane force winds stretch and how much water will be

pushed towards the west coast.

The situation will be monitored closely and this statement updated through the remainder of the week when new data is available. Continue to monitor marine VHF, NOAA weather radio, the Alaska weather show and your local media outlets for updates...as well as the national weather service social media and

weather.gov/anchorage.
