...A MONSOON TROUGH WILL CAUSE INCLEMENT WEATHER THE NEXT FEW DAYS...

A MONSOON TROUGH STRETCHES EASTWARD FROM A DEVELOPING TROPICAL
DISTURBANCE CENTERED BETWEEN YAP AND KOROR FRIDAY MORNING TO ANOTHER
AREA OF DISTURBED WEATHER OVER EASTERN MICRONESIA. COMPUTER MODELS
AND SATELLITE TRENDS INDICATE THAT WEATHER CONDITIONS ACROSS
MICRONESIA WILL BE VERY UNSTABLE AND CHANGEABLE IN THE COMING DAYS.

FOR YAP STATE AND THE REPUBLIC OF PALAU...

SOUTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 25 MPH AND PERIODS OF HEAVY SHOWERS ARE
EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS. SEA CONDITIONS WILL BE HAZARDOUS
FOR OPERATORS OF SMALL BOATS. COMBINED SEAS OF 8 TO 12 FEET IN THE
AREAS SURROUNDING YAP AND KOROR ARE EXPECTED. IF THE TROPICAL
DISTURBANCE FURTHER INTENSIFIES...THEN SEA CONDITIONS COULD BUILD
EVEN HIGHER THIS WEEKEND. RAINFALL WILL BE HEAVY ENOUGH AT TIMES TO
CAUSE FLOODING OF RIVERS AND LOW LYING AREAS ALONG WITH THE RISK OF
MUDSLIDES ON THE HIGHER ISLANDS.

FOR CHUUK...POHNPEI AND KOSRAE STATES...

WEATHER WILL BE UNSTABLE FOR LARGE AREAS OF MICRONESIA. SOUTHWEST TO
WEST MONSOON WINDS OF 10 TO 20 MPH AND LOCALLY HEAVY SHOWERS ARE
EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND. SEA CONDITIONS WILL BE HAZARDOUS AT TIMES FOR
OPERATORS OF SMALL BOATS AND HAZARDOUS SURF WILL LIKELY REQUIRE SURF
ADVISORIES FOR SOME LOCATIONS. COMBINED SEAS WILL RANGE FROM 5 TO 8
FEET BUT WILL APPROACH 10 FEET IN STRONG WIND GUSTS NEAR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. RAINFALL COULD BE HEAVY AT TIMES WITH FLOODING OF
RIVERS AND LOW LYING AREAS. THE RISK OF MUDSLIDES COULD DEVELOP ON
THE HIGHER ISLANDS THIS WEEKEND.

THE REPUBLIC OF THE MARSHALL ISLANDS...

THE MARSHALL ISLANDS WILL BE ON THE EASTERN EDGE OF THE MONSOON FLOW
AND WILL BE AFFECTED BY CONVERGENT WINDS AND SHOWERY WEATHER THIS
WEEKEND.

STAY INFORMED ON THIS DEVELOPING WEATHER SITUATION...ESPECIALLY IF
PLANNING MARINE ACTIVITIES. LISTEN FOR UPDATES AND INSTRUCTIONS FROM
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT OFFICES.
