Guam and the Marianas caught a break this weekend. Tropical Storms 21W, expected to worsen and pass directly over the islands, instead fell apart and was downgraded to a tropical depression. I even saw a bit of sunshine this afternoon, and patches of blue sky.
All is not rosy however. A storm is developing out by Kwajalein, and it is already christened with a name – Songda. Current projected storm tracks have it passing well north of the Marianas, but everyone on Guam will be paying close attention to this storm. It looks to be a doozy.
