Could See High Sea on Labor Day


Due to Typhoon Kilo NWS is looking at possibility of sea heights rising on this Monday.

Guam –  The National Weather Service mentions a possibility of high sea heights on this year’s Labor Day. In its Area Forecast Discussion from this morning. NWS writes, “On Monday…swell from Typhoon Kilo could arrive in the Marianas raising sea heights.”


Formed in Central Pacific, Kilo was originally a hurricane before it passed the international date line yesterday and became a typhoon. As of 8 AM (CHST), Kilo was reported as moving very slow at about 1 MPH. The Weather Service says that if this typhoon continues to move slowly, it could bring rather large swells to the Mariana Islands. 


Besides effecting marine conditions, however, Kilo is not expected to be a major weather maker for the Marianas, as this system is located far from the islands; as of 8 AM, Kilo was at about 24.7 north latitude and is expected to stay within 23N to 25N bound until mid next week, but Guam is located at about 13.5N and Saipan 15.2N.
