HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TIYAN GU
548 PM ChST Wed Feb 20 2019

...HEAVY RAINFALL POSSIBLE OVER THE WEEKEND...

HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE OVER THE WEEKEND AS TROPICAL STORM WUTIP
APPROACHES THE REGION. LATEST FORECAST TRACK FOR WUTIP HAS THE STORM
PASSING SOUTH OF GUAM SATURDAY MORNING. MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATES THE
POTENTIAL OF UP TO 10 INCHES OF RAIN BEGINNING SATURDAY MORNING AS
WUTIP APPROACHES.

A FAIRLY DRY PATTERN IS EXPECTED OVER THE REGION THROUGH FRIDAY. TS
WUTIP IS EXPECTED TO MOVE SOUTH OF GUAM COASTAL WATERS EARLY SATURDAY
MORNING AND MAKE A TURN TOWARD THE NORTHWEST...RESULTING IN HEAVY
SHOWERS REMAINING OVER THE ISLANDS THROUGH THE BEGINNING OF NEXT
WEEK.

THIS DEVELOPING SITUATION WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED CLOSELY AND
FLOOD WATCHES AND ADVISORIES WILL BE ISSUED WHEN NECESSARY. HEAVY
DOWNPOURS COULD PRODUCE FLOODING IN URBAN AND LOW-LYING AREAS...AND
FLASH FLOODING OF RIVERS AND STREAMS.

NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO CLEAR LEFT-OVER DEBRIS FROM DRAINAGE AREAS AND
UN-BLOCK CLOGGED STORM DRAINS IN YOUR AREA TO MINIMIZE THE CHANCE OF
FLOODING. RESIDENTS LIVING NEAR RIVERS AND STREAMS NEED TO REVIEW
PLANS FOR PROTECTING PROPERTIES.
