Tropical Rainstorm Neoguri is forecast to hit central and eastern Honshu into Tuesday with
rounds of heavy rain, which could be about 1-3 inches. Typically, minor impacts would be
expected; however, the area is already saturated from Typhoon Hagibis and heavy rains
from last week, increasing the risk for landslides and flooding.
A second major storm, Typhoon Bualoi, may track near Japan later in week. Currently, the
typhoon is forecast to remain east of mainland Japan and into the sea, but may bring more
rounds of heavy rain.
