Marine Warnings in Effect

379

NWS upgraded Marine advisories to warnings.

Guam –  The National Weather Service upgraded marine advisories to warnings for the first time this year.

“The National Weather Service in Tiyan has upgrade the High Surf Advisory to a High Surf Warning, which is in effect until 7 pm CHST this evening,” NWS writes in its Coastal Hazardous Message. The Service also writes “The National Weather Service in Tiyan has upgrade the Small Craft Advisory to a Hazardous Seas Warning for Guam waters,” in its Marine Weather Message.

 

Theses hazardous marine conditions were created by a typhoon associated-trough; however as Typhoon Maysak is continuing its westward movement, seas are subsiding. Both High Surf Warning and Hazardous Seas Warning are scheduled to be downgraded this evening, but NWS still warns residents to avoid boating or venturing near the seas in these conditions as both Small Craft and High Surf Advisories will be in effect.
