Storm On Tap For Marianas

Just in time for the three day weekend: Tropical Storm Watch issued for Guam.

Yes, there’s a storm coming our way. Tropical Depression 01W is currently 150 miles southeast of Puluwat, and heading our way at a leisurely 7 MPH. It is expected to intensify into a tropical storm in the next 24 hours. Current forecasts indicate it will make closest approach to Guam early Sunday morning. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center predicts sustained winds of 63 mph, with gusts to 80 mph.

Just lovely. I was planning on camping for a night or two this weekend, get away from it all. Guess I’ll bunker up inside my house and clean instead.
