Flash flood watch

A flash flood watch is in effect for Guam through Tuesday afternoon, meaning conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Frequent locally heavy downpours can cause streams to overflow their banks and low-lying areas to flood quickly. There is potential for 3 to 5 inches of rain across Guam with locally heavier amounts.

An urban and small stream advisory is in effect for poor drainage areas throughout Guam until 12:30 a.m. Periods of heavy showers will cause urban and small stream flooding over the next few hours. Overflowing poor drainage areas will result in minor flooding.
