As of 7 a.m., Fengshen was located 17.1 degrees north latitude and 157.1 degrees east longitude, about 765 miles east of Saipan and 855 miles east-northeast of Guam. It is moving west-northwest at 18 mph with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.
Fengshen continues its approach toward the far Northern Mariana Islands. Another, but weaker, circulation is moving westward to the north of Chuuk. As Tropical Storm Fengshen approaches to the far northeast and the Chuuk circulation approaches to the southeast, clouds and moisture will increase with isolated thunderstorms expected by Friday. Once the two systems have cleared the area by Friday night or Saturday, fair weather will return.
No direct impacts are expected for the Marianas from this tropical storm. There are no watches or warnings in effect for Guam or the Marianas at this time.
The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD), in coordination with NWS, will continue to monitor all systems in the region and provide updates. The community is reminded to stay up to date with the latest information in the coming days.
