Guam - Guam residents can expect a little rainfall late Friday and early Saturday. According to science and operations officer of the National Weather Service Roger Edson, this follows a special weather statement issued for the Marianas on a system that has developed 350 miles northeast of Guam or 250 miles east of Saipan.

"It looks interesting enough that two agencies that we follow - the Japanese Meteorological Agency and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center have both flagged it as either a tropical depression or almost to be a tropical depression," he explained.

The tropical disturbance is moving southwest with Edson predicting it will move closer to Saipan than Guam. This weekend's rain may be a result from the tail end of the disturbance which is now the subject of a tropical cyclone formation alert with a potential to become a tropical depression within the next 24 hours.
