Tracking Nepartak, In-fa and another Tropical Wave

The Olympic games are getting a bit wet today as Nepartak moves onshore just north of Tokyo. Good news this system is looking more sub-tropical than tropical today and is more or less just going to bring some scattered showers across the Tokyo area. Heavy rains are in the forecast for Northern Honshu though with heavy rainfall warnings in place in Fukushima Prefecture.

Meanwhile Typhoon In-fa is bringing flooding rains to the Shanghai area as it moved onshore yesterday, the slow movement of this storm is allowing rain totals to add up to over 500mm in totals across the Yangtze river basin.

The storm also passed Ishigaki-Jima earlier this week bringing typhoon conditions across the region. Check out this video from James Reynolds.

Meanwhile there is another tropical wave east of the Philippines. Worth watching over the coming days as it could help to continue enhancing the monsoon across the country. Specifically western Luzon where wide spread flooding has been reported over the past few weeks.
