In the meantime, a high surf advisory is currently in effect for Guam until 6 o'clock Saturday morning. Hazardous surf of 7 to 9 feet is expected along west and south facing reefs through Friday night. Residents are advised to avoid venturing near exposed reefs and beaches as rip currents are life threatening.

Also in effect is a small craft advisory until 6 o'clock this evening. Seas of 10 feet or greater and sustained winds of 22 to 33 knots are expected to produce hazardous conditions. Inexperienced mariners, especially those operating smaller vessels should avoid boating in these conditions.
