Muifa expected to pass over the Southern Japanese islands as a Typhoon

Confidence continues to build in the forecast for Muifa today. The good news for Okinawa-honto the storm is on track to pass over Miyako-Jima and possibly Ishi-gaki Sunday into Monday. This would still bring some impacts from the outer rain bands to the island of Okinawa but the main effects will be further west.

Meanwhile, in the Philippines, some inflow is possible around the storm mostly for Southern Luzon and Visayas, but nothing like what we saw during Hinnamnor. More like enhanced afternoon showers.
