Severe weather is occurring all across the Western Pacific today, for starters Typhoon Prapiroon is kicking up season nearing 10meters near its center of circulation. Further intensification of this already very strong typhoon is very likely as it inches to the North. Unfortunately its exact track is not as easy to determine. Forecast Agencies and Models alike are split on where this monster of a storm will head. At this time I would not rule out the potential of this storm to impact the southern Japanese Islands. Going through the weekend wind gust already could be approaching and over 100kph in the region plus some 5 meter high waves crashing ashore. The bulk of todays video update is dedicated to the break down and forecast of this storm.
Also in mainland Japan today severe weather has been occurring. Thirteen of Japans forty seven prefectures were under a tornado watch today as a strong and potent frontal area cruised across Honshu and Hokkaido. Severe Storms very likely will continue to persist in to the morning hours before tapering off heading in to the weekend in Japan.
On the other hand the Philippines is seeing flooding in Visayas and this may not let off until the early part of next week.
Lastly Severe flooding is expected in East India as a tropical low rushed ashore this week hitting the Assam area. A region will thousands are already displaced and more flooding will just worsen a already bad situation.
