600 PM CHST SUN JUL 20 2014

...THE GUAM LIBERATION DAY PARADE WEATHER...

ON MONDAY...GUAM WILL HOLD ITS ANNUAL LIBERATION DAY PARADE.
LIBERATION DAY CELEBRATES THE LIBERATION OF THE ISLAND BY U.S.
FORCES FROM JAPANESE OCCUPATION DURING WORLD WAR II. THE PARADES
BEGAN IN 1951.

CURRENT FORECASTS INDICATE THAT PARADE WEATHER WILL BE SHOWERY AND
WET. A TROPICAL DISTURBANCE CENTERED ABOUT 200 MILES SOUTHEAST OF
GUAM SUNDAY EVENING IS MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST. AS IT MOVES
CLOSER TO THE LOCAL AREA THE CHANCES FOR RAIN WILL INCREASE...SO
THAT SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
DURING THE TIME OF THE PARADE ON MONDAY. THERE MAY BE WIND GUSTS TO
25 MPH NEAR SHOWERS. THE HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REACH 86
DEGREES.

ON AVERAGE...
    PARADE TIME TEMPERATURES ARE...     IN THE MID 80S.
    AVERAGE DAYTIME HIGH IS...          86
    AVERAGE MORNING LOW IS...           76

EXTREMES DURING THE PERIOD FROM 1996 TO 2013...
    WETTEST...2002 WITH 1.61 INCHES BETWEEN 10AM AND 4PM.
    WARMEST...2011 WITH THE AFTERNOON HIGH REACHING 89.
    COOLEST HIGH TEMPERATURE...2002 WITH A HIGH OF ONLY 81.

AS MENTIONED ABOVE...THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE DURING THE PARADE.
WITH MANY RESIDENTS LINING THE STREETS UNDER CANOPIES...LIGHTNING IS
A MAJOR CONCERN. IF YOU WILL BE WATCHING THE PARADE...KEEP AN EYE ON
THE WEATHER. IF YOU HEAR THUNDER OR SEE LIGHTNING...GO TO A SAFE
SHELTER AWAY FROM TREES AND POWER POLES. IF NOTHING ELSE IS
AVAILABLE...AN ALL-METAL CAR PROVIDES ADEQUATE SHELTER.
