Unusually Strong Storm More Typical During Winter Months

By | September 4, 2012 - 5:36 pm

An unusually strong wind storm is affecting a huge swath of Southcentral Alaska. The storm stretches from Adak in the south and west to Big Delta in the eastern Interior.

In Anchorage, the National Weather Service is predicting the high winds to peak around midnight with gusts of up to 100 miles per hour on the hillside and 60 miles per hour in east Anchorage. National Weather Service forecaster Dave Snider calls it a potent system and says it’s comparable to a tropical storm.

Snider says the strongest winds are predicted to move through the region relatively quickly. But he says the Anchorage area could still see wind gusts between 30 and 40 miles per hour into Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.  The storm warning is in effect until 5:00 a.m. Wednesday morning.
