287

Guam – Several weather advisories remain in effect this evening. The Guam Weather Forecast Office of the National Weather Service says trade wind swells continue to produce hazardous seas, especially along east facing reefs.

A high-risk “rip currents” advisory is in effect for Guam, Rota, Tinian, and Saipan through late tonight. Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense advises residents and visitors to avoid east facing reefs and beaches until hazardous conditions subside, as rip currents are life threatening.

A small craft advisory and airport wind advisory remain in effect through at least 6:00 o’clock this evening. East winds of 10 to 20 knots with frequent gusts to 30 knots will produce hazardous conditions for small sea-craft operators. GHS/OCD says inexperienced mariners, especially small vessel operators, should avoid sailing in these conditions. Homeland Civil Defense cautions drivers to slow down and allow a little extra breaking distance between vehicles.
