Guam - Are you enjoying the rain today? It's definitely a break from the drought we'd been experiencing.  We are in the rainy season, but according to National Weather Service Chief Meteorologist Chip Guard, don't expect to see as much rainfall as in season's past.

"We had an El Nino and now we are coming out of the drought and starting to see more rain showers we could enter into a La Nina event that will force storm development out the west of us so we might not see as many typhoons, as well.  We'll just have to keep eye on that," he told KUAM News.

Guard adds that the recent drought was actually the worst Guam has seen since the early 1980's.

Meanwhile, it is Lightening Awareness Month.  Guard's number one piece of advice: when thunder roars, get indoors.
