PUBLIC AND MARINE SEVERE WEATHER INFORMATION FOR SĀMOA.

WEDNESDAY 08th MARCH 2023 | 5:00AM

VALID:

🔴HEAVY RAIN WARNING

🟠FLOOD ADVISORY

🟠MARINE ADVISORY FOR SOUTHERN MARINE WATERS

Wet and unsettling weather conditions prevail over Samoa as the convergence zone lies near south of the group in conjunction with the prevailing moist northwest windflow. Such weather conditions provided scattered showers with heavy falls and gusty periods as experienced throughout the night. The aforementioned convergence zone is predicted to move over the group later today and may bring more heavy downpours, leading to flooding in prone areas as well as rough seas over the southern marine waters. Therefore, the Heavy Rain Advisory is promptly upgraded into a Warning whereas the Flood Advisory and Marine Advisory for southern marine waters remain in force.

Available Now at SSAB

Potential Impacts:

Heavy downpours with poor visibility, foggy and slippery roads over mountain passes and ranges, pooling near roadsides and waterways. Possible landslides. Expect gusty periods during rain. Expect rough seas.

(The next severe weather information will be issued at 5:00 p.m today)
