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

The gusty northerly winds diminished some overnight but
strengthened again this morning with most areas expecting to see
stronger winds than yesterday. These winds should then begin to
diminish tonight 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.
