(Press Release) — Based on information received from the National Weather Service on Guam and compiled at the CNMI Emergency Operations Center State Warning Point, combined seas of 9 to 12 feet and fresh to strong winds will continue to create hazardous conditions for operators of small craft for the next couple of days.
Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms associated with the shear line were expected to continue over the far southern coastal waters of Guam Thursday night.
A high surf advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m., Saturday.
Surf will be hazardous at 9 to 11 feet along north-facing reefs through Saturday before gradually decreasing Saturday afternoon.
A small craft advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. Saturday.
Combined seas of 9 to 12 feet and fresh to strong winds will produce hazardous conditions for operators of small craft. Conditions will remain hazardous through at least Saturday.
Gov. Ralph D.L.G. Torres is advising the general public and inexperienced mariners, especially those operating smaller vessels, to avoid sailing in these conditions. Avoid venturing out to exposed reef lines and beaches, especially along north-facing shores as rip currents will be life-threatening.
