Sea Ice is not too far off the northeast coastline of St. Paul Island, located in the Bering Sea. The sea ice is expected to shift southwest over the next several days as northeasterly winds develop over the area. The largest impacts will be to crab fishermen out in the Bering Sea as they avoid the ice and make their plans for offloading at St. Paul.

In this false color image from the Geographic Information Network of Alaska (http://www.gina.alaska.edu/) the highest concentrations of sea ice stand out in the light blue color, while the clouds have a light pink color. This is one of the satellite resources that NWS Ice Analysts use while creating ice products.
