Guam - Guam remains in condition of readiness 4, but forecasters at the National Weather service say residents can expect a dryer day today. NWS forecaster Derek Williams says the tropical disturbance southeast of Guam, now named 97W, is not as organized as it was on their computer models yesterday, and expects the disturbance may develop north-west of the territory. He says Saipan and Tinian will feel more of the brunt of the developing system. Williams says Guam will still get heavy rains and wind come Friday evening into the weekend, but that the disturbance will not cause too much of a headache for the island. 97W will still be in its formative stages as it passes over Guam. NWS is scheduled to give an update weather briefing to all government key players this morning at Guam Homeland Security.

Meantime, a high surf advisory remains in effect for Guam and the CNMI through Saturday at 5pm. Residents are urged to avoid venturing near exposed reefs and beaches including west facing reefs where rip currents are life threatening.
