It’s associated monsoon will bring rain to Guam as early as this Thursday.
Guam – The National Weather Service says, “A circulation could be found near Kwajalein this morning,” in it’s Area Forecast Discussion. The circulation has been labelled 97W. It’s latest location based on satellite imagery was close to 8N 160E, which is about 1,137 miles southeast of Guam.
According to NWS, this circulation could affect weather in the Marianas next week, as computer models show the circulation becoming a tropical storm by the time it passes near the Marianas. It is expected to travel Northeast, however, computer models are producing slightly different projections about the exact track of the circulation. GFS and ECMWF expects this circulation to pass near Pagan while NAVGEM brings it to further north of Pagan.
Besides the long range forecast on this circulation, NWS also adds about it’s affect on Marianas this week, “The models do agree with the circulation becoming associated with an active monsoon trough. This is the reason that isolated thunderstorms are in the forecast Thursday through Sunday.”
