Typhoon Lan to make landfall late Sunday/early Monday

Good evening from the Western Pacific Weather team.

Typhoon Lan continues to threaten Japan with its powerful winds, high surf, and torrential rainfall. It is looking increasingly certain that Lan will make landfall west of the Izu Peninsula overnight Sunday into Monday morning.

For a look at the situation, here is a video update from the team.

  1. will this affect the time schedules for the air port travelers?

    • Hello, Marilyn. It does look like that flights will be disrupted throughout the evening and overnight hours. The weather should improve for most of Japan by the midday hours.
