Better Weather Ahead of Marianas This Weekend

440

 

NWS says winds can still be gusty at Saipan this week.

Guam – Despite the affects of the Typhoon Nangka, the National Weather Service expects better weather to slowly settle as the weekend comes.

 

In its Area Forecast Discussion, NWS writes, “Made little change to the overall package…with marginal tropical storm conditions today for Tinian and Saipan and more ordinary weather for Rota and Guam. Once TY Nangka clears the area on Friday…Weather should greatly improve for Tinian and Saipan but winds will be gusty there through Fri night.”

 

As a result, the Weather Service forecast winds to gust up to 35 MPH on Saipan tonight, and reduce slowly down to 15-20 MPH range by Saturday. On Guam, winds are expected be back to its usual range of 10 to 15 MPH by Saturday. Still, High Surf Advisory and Small Craft Advisories are in effect for the Marianas.

 

Typhoon Warning is lifted from Tinian and Saipan but a Tropical Storm Warning is still in effect as tropical storm condition is expected through this afternoon on Saipan.
