Small craft advisory today
A small craft advisory is in effect from midnight last night to 6am today, Monday.

Based on the information received from the National Weather Service in Guam and compiled at the CNMI Emergency Operations Center-State Warning Point, south winds are building to between 20 and 25 knots, with occasional gusts of 30 knots. Choppy seas between 5 and 8 feet are expected. These conditions will be hazardous to small craft.

Largest seas are likely near Guam. Reduced visibility likely at times due to waves of heavy showers. Inexperienced mariners, especially those operating smaller vessels, should avoid navigating in hazardous conditions. (PR)
