Typhoon Mindulle Passing Near Tokyo, Japan Friday

A messy Friday in the Forecast for the Izu islands and coastal Kanto Plain in Japan. It May not be a full-on Typhoon for Tokyo but for the coast some tropical storm conditions are likely. This includes the Yokosuka area where gust over 100kph is possible Friday afternoon. That equals a few gusts over “50kts” enough to sufficiently toss a trampoline or two.

The 50KT forecast is also expected via CFAY or the Military weather office in Yokosuka.

Good news is the storm will peak Friday but by Saturday conditions will rapidly improve on the back side of Mindulle leading to some nice weather over the weekend.
