We continue to monitor Typhoon Hagibis in the North West Pacific basin.
Typhoon Hagibis is a category four storm and is located at coordinates 17.7 N 142.6 E which is approximately 380km northwest of Guam with sustained winds of 250km/h and gusts of nearly 305km/h.
Typhoon Hagibis is expected to slowly weaken through Friday as it moves over the open waters of the West Pacific to the south of Japan. Despite some weakening, Hagibis will remain a powerful typhoon as it approaches Japan and will be capable of producing life-threatening impacts.
Typhoon Hagibis may still be producing winds equal to a Category 3 major hurricane when it reaches Japan’s eastern coastline on Saturday. Current forecasts take Hagibis to the east of the Ryukyu Islands, with impacts limited to rough seas and surf. Mainland Japan is at risk of a direct impact from Hagibis.
Along with the damaging winds and torrential rain, large waves and storm surges are likely to cause life-threatening floods and possibly mudslides leading to widespread disruption.
Tokyo may have some of the most significant impacts from the storm with rain possibly beginning on Friday night before the worst of the wind and rain occurs Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.
