Guam - Residents can expect more heavy rainfall and isolated thunderstorms for the rest of the week.

This news comes out of the National Weather Service who reports a tropical disturbance moving through the Marianas today, with the center at the northern tip of Guam.

NWS senior forecaster Mike Middlebrooke tells KUAM News the disturbance will likely develop into a tropical depression once it hits the west of the island anticipated late tonight or Friday.

"There certainly is a risk of getting a tropical storm or typhoon this time of year but this year I would say the risk is pretty close to our normal risk its not higher because of an El Nino or lower because La Nina but more or less normal but the bottom line is, be prepared just in case," he said.

Local flooding is possible for the next couple of days, but damaging winds are not expected at this time.
