...TROPICAL DISTURBANCE IN CHUUK STATE...

A TROPICAL DISTURBANCE LOCATED BY SATELLITE IMAGERY IS NEAR 7N151E.
THIS IS ABOUT 70 MILES WEST-SOUTHWEST OF CHUUK. THIS DISTURBANCE IS
EXPECTED TO TRACK SLOWLY WESTWARD DURING THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

HEAVY SHOWERS DURING THE LAST 12 HOURS DROPPED UP TO 6 INCHES OF
RAIN OVER SOME ISLANDS OF CHUUK STATE. CURRENT VISIBLE SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS JUST SOUTH OF CHUUK
LAGOON NEAR LOSAP AND LUKUNOR. ANOTHER DISTURBANCE NEAR
FARAULEP...WOLEAI AND JUST WEST OF SATAWAL IS PRODUCING HEAVY
SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS IN YAP STATE. THESE LOCALLY HEAVY
SHOWERS COULD PRODUCE AN ADDITIONAL 2 TO 4 INCHES OF RAINFALL
THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON AT THESE LOCATIONS.

THE RISK OF MUDSLIDES WILL INCREASE FOR THE HIGH ISLANDS OF CHUUK
LAGOON IF HEAVY RAINFALL DOES OCCUR OVER THOSE AREAS TONIGHT AND
SUNDAY.

WINDS ACROSS THIS REGION ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN MODERATE TO FRESH
THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND SEAS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BECOME HAZARDOUS AT
THIS TIME.

ISLANDS OF CHUUK AND YAP STATES SHOULD KEEP ADVISED ON FUTURE
DEVELOPMENTS OF THESE DISTURBANCES.
