Guam - The National Weather Service has issued several advisories for Guam.

A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the island through 6:00pm Tuesday.  This means that wind speeds of 21-33 knots are expected to produce hazardous wave conditions to small craft. Inexperienced mariners especially those operating smaller vessels should avoid sailing in these conditions.

Meanwhile, a winter storm moving away from Japan has created large north swells. These swells have begun to arrive in the Marianas and are expected to produce hazardous surf through Tuesday.  As a result the NWS has issued a High Surf Advisory for Guam through 6:00pm Tuesday.  Large swells and hazardous surf will produce life threatening rip currents along north facing reefs.

The National Weather Service has also issued a Red Flag Warning which is in effect until 6:00pm Tuesday. This means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will be shortly.  According to the NWS a combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures will create enhanced fire growth potential.
