Typhoon Hagibis: Rainfall rivals killer Typhoon Kanogawa that left 1200 dead in 1958 | World | News

The latest advisory from the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre (JTWC) based in Hawaii, states Hagibis will start to weaken on arrival to the Japanese mainland.

They wrote: “Over the next 12 to 24 hours, TY 20w (Hagibis) will track poleward and gradually turn northeastward along the western periphery of the steering ridge as it approaches the island of Honshu.

“Steady weakening is expected prior to landfall as vertical wind shear quickly increases ahead of an approaching mid-latitude trough and as the northern portion of the storm circulation interacts with land.

“The system centre is expected to pass very close to the Tokyo area, around Tau 24 (24 hours), before the system rapidly accelerates out to sea to the east of Honshu.”
