Record Low Pressure System Heading for Alaska

A world-record low pressure system is heading for Alaska, according to The Weather Network. Winds will approach 200kph, waves will reach 30m in height and parts of the West Coast, including British Columbia, will receive snowfall measured “not in centimetres, but in metres”.

The lowest pressure ever recorded in the Bering Sea is 924 mb. This storm, which forecasters are calling a “bomb cyclone”, could reach below 920 mb.

Skiers will delight; boaters and coastal communities, not so much.
