..POSSIBLE HIGH SURF THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING
 
 
A STRONG LOW IS TRACKING NORTH ACROSS THE FAR WESTERN BERING SEA  
THIS EVENING. THIS SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO BRING GALE FORCE WINDS  
AND HIGH SEAS TO THE WESTERN BERING THROUGH THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA  
COAST OVERNIGHT. THE COMBINATION OF STRONG SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS AND  
HIGH SEAS WILL RAISE WATER LEVELS 1 TO 3 FEET ABOVE HIGH  
ASTRONOMICAL TIDE (GRASS LINE) ALONG THE COAST FROM THE KUSKOKWIM  
BAY NORTHWARD TO HOOPER BAY THROUGH LATE THIS EVENING. LOOK FOR  
WATER LEVELS TO BE THE HIGHEST DURING THE EVENING HIGH TIDE  
CYCLES, CREATING THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR MINOR FLOODING OF LOW  
LYING AREAS, BEACH EROSION, AND ROUGH SURF.
