Anchorage Severe Watches & Warnings NOAA Weather Radio

Special Statement
Statement as of 8:22 PM AKDT on August 30, 2015

... Gusty northerly winds will persist over southcentral Alaska...

The gusty northerly winds over the region will diminish some
overnight tonight but then quickly strengthen again Monday
morning with most areas seeing stronger winds Monday than today.
These winds should then begin to diminish Monday night with
Tuesday seeing much lower winds with the strong gusts relegated
to the more common windy areas such as Seward Whittier and Valdez.

These gusty winds will increase the risk of branches breaking off
trees and possibly causing some trees to blow over.

Use caution around campfires and burn piles as these winds can
cause fires to spread rapidly.

The relic ash from the 1912 katmai Volcano eruption will continue
to get resuspended in these strong winds and impact Shelikof
Strait and parts of Kodiak Island with periods of poor air
quality. Persons who are sensitive to poor air quality should
consider staying indoors.
