Typhoon No. 4 is expected to approach Kyushu tomorrow

Atmospheric conditions have become unstable due to effects of typhoon No.4 and moist air from high pressure, and rain clouds have developed locally in Kyushu, Shikoku, Kinki, and Hokuriku, which are far from typhoons.

The typhoon is expected to approach Kyushu on July 5th, and there is a risk of heavy rain, especially in western Japan, and the Japan Meteorological Agency is calling for caution against sediment-related disasters and inundation of low land.

According to the observations of the Japan Meteorological Agency, Typhoon No. 4 is traveling north-northeast at a speed of about 15 km per hour in the East China Sea at 9 am on July 4th.

The central pressure is 996 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is 18 meters, the maximum instantaneous wind speed is 25 meters, and strong winds of 15 meters or more are blowing within 220 km to the east and 165 km to the west of the center.

In addition to the moist air from Typhoon No. 4, moist air is flowing around the edge of the Pacific High, causing unstable atmospheric conditions in a wide range of western and eastern Japan, leaving Kyushu and other typhoons away. Rain clouds are locally developing in Shikoku, Kinki, and Hokuriku.
