+ Effects & Hazards: DIANMU's circulation remains decoupled, with its rain convection ahead of its low-level center - a sign that the system is almost Extratropical. Its outer bands continues to spread across northern Honshu and Hokkaido. Strong to Gale force winds of up to 65 kph with higher gusts can be expected within the southern & eastern quadrants of the inner bands.
