Typhoon Jongdari arriving in Japan – Video
Typhoon Jongdari is about to make landfall in central Japan, where Typhoon Warnings are in effect. However, the storm is rapidly weakening as it draws towards the west. The storm is expected to continue weakening and may survive into the East China Sea, but there remains uncertainty over its track. The GFS model believes that the storm will perform an anticlockwise loop around the southern end of Kyushu, surviving as a tropical storm into the East China Sea and dissipating near Shanghai. The HWRF calls for similar except without the loop. The CTCX model calls for a track into the Korean Peninsula and therefore a quicker death.
