Severe Floods in Japan and Tropical Storm 16W

16W still has not been named yet but if it does it will be called Omais from JMA, at the time though that likely will not happen for another 48hrs as the storm is going through some decent shear. Yet as it nears Guam expect conditions to improve for development.

Meanwhile in Japan,
