.Marianas Synopsis...
Satellite imagery shows cloudiness decreasing across the Marianas
with only isolated showers. Combined seas between 4 and 5 feet are
indicated at the buoys, with moderate southeast winds.

&&

.Discussion...
With the demise of former TS Muifa, the models show a relatively dry
trade-wind regime returning to the Marianas, featuring partly cloudy
skies and isolated showers. For the next week or so, no significant
weather systems are expected in the region.

&&

.Marine...
As easterly trade winds return, combined seas in the 4-5 ft range
will build slightly after Sunday due to slowly increasing east swell.

&&

.Eastern Micronesia...
A trade-wind disturbance is causing showers and thunderstorms south
of Kosrae while dry weather and moderate to fresh trades are seen
elsewhere. Little change is expected at Majuro as dry weather
persists into the middle of next week. Convection will expand
northward early next week at Kosrae, bringing scattered showers by
Tuesday, and bringing isolated thunderstorms to Pohnpei late Sunday.

Fresh to strong trades at Majuro will gradually taper off Sunday
evening. Until then, winds will be hazardous to small craft.

&&

.Western Micronesia...
Fair weather at Chuuk will persist the next couple of days. A trade-
wind disturbance south of Kosrae will eventually pass by to the south
early next week, bringing increasing clouds, showers, and isolated
thunderstorms.

Conditions at Palau will remain slightly unsettled today with
isolated thunderstorms slowly moving through the area. Winds across
Yap and Palau will be weak for the next several days. East to
northeast trades will return later in the weekend. Models show some
clouds and showers in the area early next week, but no significant
weather makers.
