... A storm force weather front will affect the Panhandle Monday...

A considerable front will affect the Panhandle Monday. Winds,
seas, snowfall amounts, and blowing snow will all be impactful.
Expect winds to increase through the day Monday with storm force
winds in the eastern Gulf waters and Cross Sound late Monday
morning and early Monday afternoon. Strong gales associated with
the front will also be present over the rest of the Gulf waters
and spanning the Inner Channels from Cross Sound through and
including Lynn Canal. Seas will build over the Gulf considerably
into Tuesday afternoon with 20 to 30 ft seas expected over the
Gulf waters before they begin to subside Tuesday evening.
Land winds will be gusty as the front approaches and with
potential strong southeast winds for the majority of the
Panhandle. Westerly winds will also be enhanced through the Icy
Strait corridor. Land winds will slowly diminish tomorrow night
behind the front.

Currently snowfall totals for all of Monday range from less than 1
inch south of Sumner Strait to 4 to 8 inches near Yakutat,
Pelican, Haines, Skagway, and Juneau. As the front comes ashore
with snowfall coupled with stronger winds will create conditions
that are favorable for blowing snow, specifically over the
northern Panhandle.

Primary impacts with this system will be: difficult marine
travel, significantly reduced visibilities during periods of heavy
snow, and difficult land and aviation travel during heavier
periods of snow.
