Invest 95W continues to lift northward and could become a tropical depression in the next couple of days. Fortunately, 95W will not affect the Marianas.
For the latter half of the week, the Marianas will see increasing chances for heavy rainfall and gusty southwest winds.
Expect 4 – 8 inches of rainfall with locally higher amounts possible. Winds will be south to southwesterly sustained at 15 to 20 mph with gusts to 40 mph with any stronger shower or thunderstorm developments.
Residents and visitors are advised to take the following precautionary actions:
- If driving, be alert for low visibilities and slippery roads in heavy rain
- Turn Around, Don’t Drown. Avoid walking or driving through flood waters. Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away
- Slow down where water is ponding on the road
