Guam - If you are planning to head to the beach today or tomorrow, please take notice that the National Weather Service has issued a small craft advisory and a high surf advisory for Guam. Both advisories are in effect until four o'clock in the afternoon Wednesday.

According to the NWS Northeast winds of 15 to 20 knots and combined seas of 9 to 11 feet will continue through Wednesday morning and as a result operating a small craft under these conditions is hazardous.  Additionally, hazardous surf of 9 to 11 feet along north facing shores and 8 to 10 feet along west facing shores will persist through Wednesday morning. You are advised to not venture near exposed reefs and beaches, especially those facing north and west as rip currents will be life threatening.

Strong winds associated with a shear line are causing hazardous conditions across the Mariana Islands.
