big and useful update on the JMA (Japan meteorological agency) website was put in place on Wednesday the 17th of May 2017, now more details are being released on warnings/ advisories. In English!


This is a big jump from the warning information provided before which in short was released simply “there is a thunderstorm advisory in place” with little more information beyond that.  Now upon clicking ones local ward/ city you can find out how long the advisory is in place and what the details associated with it are.

For example with thunderstorms you may see in the remark section they have hail associated with them, or with dry air the exact minimum relative humidity in the forecast.

In short for any one in Japan looking for decent weather information (in english) this is a big step in the right direction. Check it out at this link.
