Guam - The National Weather Service has issued a Fire Weather Watch, which is in effect from Saturday morning through Monday afternoon. Affected areas include the mountains and grassy areas of Southern and Central Guam. Most dangerous times will be from the mid morning hours till around sunset. Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly.

This is especially true for north and east-facing slopes. Outdoor burning is not recommended as flying embers and ash may start spot fires downwind.

A Fire Weather Watch means that critical fire weather conditions are forecast to occur.
