Hazardous surf persists; more rain expected

by Jolene Toves

Guam - The National Weather Service is advising the public to stay of the water for the next few days. NWS forecaster Mike Middlebrooke says a High Surf Advisory remains in effect for Guam as surf is hazardous between nine and 14 feet making for extremely dangerous swimming or boating conditions.

As for the weather, Middlebrooke says we can expect the rain to continue into Wednesday.  He notes that this is very unusual weather for January, but attributes the rain to a low pressure system that is located south of Guam. 

The Guam Fire Department meanwhile is asking residents and tourists to stay out of the water as January is often the busiest month for search and rescues due to the hazardous water conditions.
