.Marianas Synopsis...
Cloudiness is increasing across the Marianas as a surface trough
approaches from the ESE. Scattered showers are already evident
around the islands, with more developing out to the east and
southeast. Winds are light and variable, with 2-3 ft seas at the
buoys.

&&

.Discussion...
Forecast is little changed, with scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms through Fri night, and isolated thunder lingering
through Sat night. After that, mid-level drying will result in
only isolated showers for next week. Meanwhile, seas remain
generally light with a low risk of rip currents.

&&

.Eastern Micronesia...
Isolated showers and thunderstorms remain across Pohnpei State
this evening as a nearby surface trough continues west. Another
surface trough stretches west to east from south of Kosrae and
Majuro to beyond the date line. Fair weather persisted at Kosrae
and Majuro today, but some showers will pass over Kosrae tonight.
This trough will head slowly west-northwest bringing showers and
thunderstorms to Majuro Friday through Monday, and to Kosrae and
Pohnpei Friday night into Sunday morning. A light and variable
wind pattern will follow early next week with drier weather across
the region Monday and Tuesday.

&&

.Western Micronesia...
Dry weather today tried to hold on into the evening hours at
Chuuk, but a surface trough has brought more showers and
thunderstorms to the state. Showery weather will continue through
Friday night before drier conditions return Saturday. Another
trough could bring more showers late Sunday and Monday. Light
southwest to west winds and isolated showers are present near Yap
and Koror. Isolated thunderstorms are possible the next couple
days as a weak wind pattern persists. Quieter weather is expected
into the new week.
