The National Weather Service (NWS) Guam Weather Forecast Office has the following advisories in effect:
A high surf advisory is in effect for Guam, Rota, Tinian, and Saipan through Monday night. Surf of 6 to 8 feet will build to between 7 and 10 feet later today and tonight for north and west facing reefs. Dangerous swimming and surfing conditions and localized beach erosion are expected, especially during high tides.
A high risk of rip currents remains in effect for Guam, Rota, Tinian, and Saipan, through Monday night. Dangerous rip currents are expected along north and west facing reefs. Rip currents can sweep even the best swimmers away from the shore into deeper water. Inexperienced swimmers should remain out of the water due to dangerous surf conditions. If caught in a rip current, do not swim against the current. Swim in a direction following the shoreline, face the shore and call or wave for help.
The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD) remind the community to avoid hazardous surf, especially north and west facing reefs and beaches. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags, and signs.
