Typhoon Next Week?

Looking quite menacing as the forecast calls for a landfall somewhere around Shikoku to western Honshu.

Yeah, looks like it's a big one. You can get info here. They update frequently:

Oh no, hopefully it won't be as big as it seems now.

It's a big one.....

U.S. Military is forecasting a re-curve so the typhoon dumps heavy rain all the way from Kansai to Chubu and Kanto.

The track forecast will change the next couple of days, but good chance of landfall between Kansai and Kanto.

The recurve has slowed somewhat the last 24 hours which is bad news as it might take the storm over more land areas.

It looks like the typhoon is going to hit Shikoku then Kansai area. If you're coming to Japan in next few days, check your flight status frequently, especially if you're flying into KIX. Some Kyushu and Shikoku bound flights had been cancelled already.

Most flights to and from Shikoku and southeast Kyushu have been cancelled.

Fukuoka and Kansai still flying for now, but expect those to go down too

The good news is the typhoon is now looking significantly less powerful than the projections a few days ago so the storm will pack less punch in terms of winds. It is still a fairly direct hit just south of Osaka though so the next couple of days will be rough.

It's "here."

…yahoo.co.jp/weather/jp/typhoon/typh6.html

Came up from the south and is making a sharp turn to the right. There must be a red light with a green arrow up there along Typhoon Ginza main street! Unfortunately, it's creeping along. Will only be traveling at 10 km per hour when it makes its 90 degree turn. Will be DUMPING -- strong winds and LOTS of rain. Forecast is for it to get closest to Tokyo on Thursday. (And it's only Tuesday!)

Beware of flying objects. Don't go near rivers, the ocean or areas that might have a landslide. Many expressways that go by the sea are closed. There might be train and plane delays and cancellations tomorrow. People have already died. Others who live in "precarious" places are being evacuated.

Watch the news and stay safe!

The rain's let up now in Nara; no big deal here today, just a light drizzle of rain now and again. Looks as if the typhoon is now going to swerve almost off the Pacific Coast.

Just heard NHK news: rainfall hit the record high in Kochi, Shikoku Island: 851.5ml a day. If the typhoon keeps heading as expected: north north east, southern parts of Nara will soon be seriously affected. News video already showed the Kumano River flooding...warnings of landslide issued in various places in Kii Peninsula. Yet, Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto and Northen Nara may perhaps be spared. But the slower it moves, the more rain...
