...Monsoon circulation developing near Palau...

The circulation passed across Palau late Friday night and early this
morning and is now centered about 60 miles north-northwest of Palau
near 8 degrees North 134 degrees East. The circulation is expected
to drift slowly west-northwest over the next few days.

Satellite derived winds indicate winds of 25 to 30 mph south and
southwest of the circulation with lighter winds of 10 to 15 mph
elsewhere.

Showers and thunderstorms associated with the circulation have moved
west of Palau and models keep the bulk of the showers away from
the main islands today. These showers are expected to build back
over Palau tonight.

Rainfall will be heavy at times over Palau through Monday and there
is still be a significant potential for mud slides. Some flooding
has already occurred and more flooding is likely through Monday.

Sea conditions could become hazardous in these areas with a combination
of southwest swell and wind waves of 8 to 10 feet developing the
next few days across Palau and possibly into Yap State.

If you are planning outdoor or marine activity or inter-island
travel...be aware of current marine conditions and stay informed
on the latest forecasts and advisories issued by the National
Weather Service and local Emergency Management Offices.

Products issued by the National Weather Service are posted on the
