The National Weather Service (NWS) Guam Weather Forecast Office has issued a short term forecast for Guam, Rota, Tinian, and Saipan, and their coastal waters.
A surface trough from the south will combine with some daytime island heating to bring passing showers and thunderstorms to much of the Marianas and coastal waters through 6 p.m. Up to an inch and a half of rainfall will be possible along with gusts up to 20 mph near showers and thunderstorms.
The community is advised to watch for occasional lightning and reduced visibilities down to around one mile near heavier showers. Brief gusts up to 25 knots are also possible over the waters near showers and thunderstorms. If lightning is seen or thunder is heard, seek shelter indoors.
The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD) remind the community to practice extreme caution while traveling in rainy conditions, driving below the speed limit and allowing enough braking distance between vehicles.
