Based on the information received from the National Weather Service in Guam and compiled at the CNMI Emergency Operations Center, fresh to occasionally strong trade winds and combined seas of 8 to 10 feet are expected to produce hazardous conditions for operators of small craft through Thursday. A disturbance passing south of the Marianas could bring isolated thunderstorms Thursday through Friday.
A small craft advisory remains in effect until 6am Friday. East winds of 15 to 25 knots and combined seas of 8 to 10 feet will produce conditions hazardous to small craft.
The general public and mariners, especially inexperienced mariners and those operating smaller vessels, are being advised to avoid boating in these conditions. If travel by boat is necessary, exercise caution especially near reef lines and when entering or leaving harbors and inlets.
