NWS: cold night air came from Asia

Guam - You may have noticed the cooler than normal temperatures in the early morning hours on Guam lately. Well, weather experts say it has nothing to do with global warming.

National Weather Service senior forecaster Paul Stanko says the weather is caused by dryer air coming from Northern Asia. "We recorded a 70 (degrees F), which is pretty low for the airport especially and we do have some thermometers out in the field but they don't record in real time, we will go out and get the readings in a week or two. Those thermometers recorded values as low as 61 previously, we are using those for research so hopefully we can prove our forecast in the future," he explained.

He says the coolest areas were recorded in a valley near the Leo Palace Resort. Stanko says temperatures will start to warm up again tomorrow, but anticipates a much wetter dry season.
