Guam – If you are wondering where all this rain is coming from, it’s coming from a monsoon flow that is currently developing across the Marianas.
Basically this monsoon flow is a gathering of scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms in large areas from the Marianas to the Northern parts of Eastern Micronesia. According to the National Weather Service this disturbance will further develop and move slowly toward the North of Northwest resulting in westerly winds and showers across the Mariana islands for the next few days and possibly through the weekend. “There will be isolated thunder storms for the next few days but we’re not looking for anything like a big tropical storm or epic proportions of rainfalls or anything there could be some locally heavy rain but there will be breaks the main thing is the change in the direction of wind and a prolonged period of scattered showers which we really haven’t had much of this year,” said NWS forecaster Mike Middlebrook adding, “I might add that any tropical cyclone that develops in this system will be up to our north and it should stay well to our north. so don’t worry about any tropical storms at least not for now.”
Guam could expect westerly winds of 10 to 20 miles per hour by Friday with some stronger gusts near showers through the weekend. Seas in the Marianas will become rough and choppy later this week boaters should be prepared for hazardous coastal conditions.
