If you're like us, you're probably wondering what's up with the weather? According to the National Weather Service, all this rain has been caused by a large monsoon depression that's moving northwest of Guam. For the month of August alone, the island received 26 inches of rain and 1.8 inches just yesterday.
Forecaster Paul Stanko says the system is moving away and the rain should ease up over the next few days but residents should keep an umbrella handy through the weekend. "Right now there's a little circulation southwest of Pohnpei and there's a bit of troughing south of Hawaii that the models tell us next week might become something. But we'll wait until next week occurs before we make any further determination on that," Stanko said.
