Guam – The National Weather Service says a new circulation developed out of a trough monsoon in the Micronesia.
Earlier today, NWS said, “The monsoon trough remains active across Micronesia.. and the infrared satellite loop shows some indications of a weak circulation centered somewhere south of Guam around 8N 146E.” Then in its latest area forecast discussion, NWS writes, “ASCAT analysis indicates a disturbance south of Guam is centered at about 8.5N/144.5E and becoming better organized.”
Considering the distance this newly developed system moved in about 10 hour span, the circulation seems to have little to no initial movement; however, the Weather Service expects this disturbance to move towards northwest slowly.
“Gentle to moderate trade winds are still expected the next few days… but mixed sea conditions will develop by early next week,” NWS also adds in regarding the sea change factors.
