NWS says expect only about 24% chance of rain over the weekend.
Guam – While high winds and scattered showers will stay around the Marianas tonight, weekend weather is expected to improve according to the National Weather Service.
Based on the NWS’ Tabular Forecast, current chance of rain at 40% will reduce to 24% starting 6 AM (CHST) on Saturday. Likewise, Mariana Islands Forecast shows scattered showers reducing into just isolated showers for this weekend. High winds that gusted up to 40 miles per hour today are also expected to reduce to usual winds speed range of 10 to 15 MPH over the weekend.
In explaining the reason behind these changes, the Weather Service writes, “Typhoon Atsani and the moist monsoon flow should edge northward far enough over the weekend that shower coverage will taper off to isolated showers and thunderstorms through most of next week,” in its Area Forecast Discussion. Regarding the marine condition, NWS also comments, “Small craft and high surf advisories remain in effect but hazardous marine conditions will be slow to improve over the weekend.”
