Been watching this one for a while. Pro tip: this should be in the JC Surfers thread.
From Nov 5th:
Ex-Nuri predicted to become one of Earth's strongest storms on record
According to wunderground's weather historian Christopher C. Burt, the all-time Alaska low pressure record is 27.35" (926 mb) at Dutch Harbor on October 25, 1977. Ex-Nuri would have a chance to beat that record if its center passed over one of the Aleutian Islands on Saturday morning, but it appears that when the storm is at peak intensity, the center will miss any Aleutian Islands by a wide margin. Ex-Nuri is also likely to fall short of the lowest estimated pressure for any extratropical storm world-wide, the 26.96" (913 mb) pressure estimated for a January 11, 1993 storm off the Shetland Islands in the North Atlantic (documented in Christopher C. Burt's book, Extreme Weather.) Mr. Burt has a comprehensive post on all these records in his November 10, 2011 post, Super Extra-tropical Storms; Alaska and Extra-tropical Record Low Barometric.
