Widespread storms can affect transportation
Typhoon 11 is expected to leave western Japan this afternoon and move rapidly northeast across the Sea of Japan. It is expected to develop into an extratropical cyclone tonight. Winds will strengthen not only in Kyushu, but also in areas facing the Sea of Japan, such as Sanin and Hokuriku, and there is the possibility of momentary storms of around 30 m/s. Even on the Pacific side, which is far from the typhoon’s path, one must be vigilant for the same level of storms in areas such as the Bungo Channel and the Kii Channel, where southerly winds tend to blow due to topography. Even in northern Japan, strong winds and storms are expected tonight, mainly on the Sea of Japan side. Transport such as railways, roads and air can be affected, so if you plan to travel, please check the latest operating information in addition to weather information.
