Waves of rare magnitude battering the coast, captured on the Barrow webcam. Hat tip to AM2 on the melting season thread.

Wow, and overtopping the sea wall that they built a couple of years ago! Which they had to build because they never had storms with waves before that.

I check that webcam several times per day and Barrow has had some brutal weather lately. It seems like nonstop rain and storms, so I can only imagine what they type of wave action is doing to the ice that not all *that* far off the coast. If it every gets sunny up there I expect the grass to grow like crazy.
pls!

This, with the Utqiagvik image, is just terrifying.

Per NWS (early this morning AK time):

...Heavy Rains and Elevated Surf Expected...

Additional rainfall of up to one quarter of an inch of rain is
expected along the Chukchi Sea Coast through noon today with
storm total rainfall of up to three quarters of an inch possible
as a weather front moves through the area. Westerly winds with
gusts of 25 to 45 mph are also expected through this evening.
These winds will cause elevated surf, with the highest water
levels expected through this evening. The elevated surf may cause
minor beach erosion.

Marine forecast for Utqiagvik area has waves building to 5 ft. (1.5m).

Not as rare as these from 2015 though?

Plus moonsoon like torrental rainfall as it seams.

If that's the situation a few miles out where the ice is it will have a significant impact on top melt.

If i'm not mistaken rainfall melts way more ice in way less time than much warmer air, ready to be corrected if that's not the case.

The rainfall is certainly very important! But, they never get monsoon like torrential rains in the arctic. When we start seeing that, it is time to kiss our asses goodby because the Hadley and Ferrell cells have fallen apart.

The latest forecast is a big one, but small by standards that we are familiar with in the mid and tropical latitudes.

Ok, slightly exagerated, standing to be corrected.

Just looks like more intense precipitation that's I've not see so often on that webcam, really wet in contrast to the usual drizzle.

I see the chance for a repeat this August.
That storm was really memorable, even if not a GAC it pulled impressive waves and flash melted a big extent of the Beaufort sea at the last moment.

I'm trying to understand what's going on in this image.  Sea-level fog with some kind of wind disturbance?  The islands seem to be leaving a wake of some kind.

This guy is the best expert I have ever seen on clouds. I left him a message on Twitter with a link to your post and asked him if he would respond.

I’m curious too because I see this pattern a lot.

If he does not respond, then maybe try to contact him directly on Twitter. 

Good luck! Let me know what you find out. 👍🏻

    Thanks for posting that Miki.  It is both gorgeous and exemplifies many of the mathematical patterns in nature.

A bit of a mysterious image from Worldwiev. Something red flying in satellite orbit under the imaging satellite? UFO for me at least for now. :o :P ::) abt 410km north of Nares entrance.

Those were observed before. Pmt. I think it's just a rendering error with the WorldView software.

Ok, so not a chinese space station, a chemtrail spreading machine, or an alien vessel observing ASI :-P

An INO ( identified nonflying object) then
