Transcript for Monster Storm Slams Into Alaska With Forceful Winds, Huge Waves
story, the monster storm slamming Alaska with hurricane-force winds and huge waves. And this question this morning. How is it that that storm is likely to mean a big blast of early winter in the lower 4. Other to meteorologist rob Marciano. Please explain. It's just such a big and powerful storm, it's jacking up the jet stream. Let's listen to some sound out of Alaska. This is yesterday afternoon. How ferocious this wind is. We had winds gusting to 96 miles per hour. That's measured on land. Offshore, worse than that. And another piece of video, some of the fishermen scrambling to get back to protect their catch and vessels as well. As far as where this storm is and where it's going, right now it has a bare metric pressure, 927. Below 925, that would be the strongest storm in this part of the world as long as we have been keeping records. May do that today, and ramp things down. But the waves will be huge as well. 50 footers in some cases throughout the islands and the entire western half of Alaska will be affected by this. But, again, pumps up so much warm air. This was once a typhoon. The atmosphere is going to react to where all the arctic air is driving down to the south. Windchills in Dallas in the 20s. And as far north as bismarck below zero. That's the arctic chill.
