FORECAST OUTLOOK ANALYSIS (up to 2 days)* MA-ON's (INENG) CLOSEST POINT OF APPROACH (CPA)* EXTENDED FORECAST TRACK (3 to 5 days)* EFFECTS & HAZARDS SUMMARY
MA-ON (INENG) is expected to continue losing strength as it veers towards the NE and make landfall along the Southeastern, Eastern Shikoku & Wakayama Peninsula (Southern Honshu) within the next 24 to 36 hours. It shall track more to the East to ESE, passing south of Tokyo by early Thursday morning (48 hours). Below is the summary of the 2-day forecast for this system.
THIS AFTERNOON (TUE): Moving NNE very near the Southern Coast of Shikoku, Japan...about 115 km SSW of Kagoshima, Japan [2PM JUL 19: 32.5N 133.3E @ 140kph].
EARLY TOMORROW MORNING (WED): Weakens slightly as it moves NE-ward...making landfall along the SE-Eastern Shikoku...about 105 km ENE of Kochi, Japan [2AM JUL 20: 33.8N 134.7E @ 130kph].
TOMORROW AFTERNOON (WED): Just along the east coast of Wakayama Peninsula after crossing the area...just barely a typhoon...about 145 km SSW of Nagoya, Japan [2PM JUL 20: 33.9N 136.6E @ 120kph].
THURSDAY EARLY MORNING: Downgraded to a Tropical Storm (TS) just south of the coast of Southern Honshu, as it accelerates towards the ESE across the NW Pacific Ocean...about 245 km SW of Tokyo, Japan [2AM JUL 21: 33.7N 138.6E @ 110kph].
Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) are near 140 km/hr (75 knots) with higher gusts. MA-ON (INENG) is a Category 1 Typhoon on the Saffir-Simpson Tropical Cyclone Scale. Continued weakening is expected within the next 12-24 hours due to land interaction. Typhoon Force Winds (118 km/hr or more) extend outward up to 75 kilometers (40 nautical miles) from the center...and Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-117 km/hr) extend outward up to 390 kilometers (210 nautical miles). MA-ON remains a very large-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 1,155 kilometers (625 nautical miles) across.
SOUTHEASTERN-EASTERN SHIKOKU: Making landfall...about 50 km ESE of Kochi City [ETA: between 10:00 PM-12:00 AM JST Tonight].
WAKAYAMA PENINSULA, HONSHU: Making landfall along the peninsula [ETA: between 6:00 AM-1:00 PM JST Tomorrow, July 20].

Therefore, a turn to the left or right of its future track and changes in its wind speed must be anticipated from time to time.
MA-ON's (INENG) very large circulation continues to hold on near the coast of Eastern Kyushu but losing strength. Below is the summary of the storm's parts and its hazards affecting specific areas:
CLOUD-FILLED EYE - remains over water (or near the coast of Eastern Kyushu)...not affecting any land areas. Possible calm and lull conditions (with <20 kph winds) can be expected inside the eye (click here to know more about the EYE).
EYEWALL - remains over water (or near the coast of Eastern Kyushu)...not affecting any land areas. Typhoon Conditions with typhoon force winds (>118 kph) can be expected within this wall (click here to know more about the Eyewall).
INNER RAINBANDS - spreading & affecting the coastal areas of Eastern Kyushu, Shikoku, & Wakayama Peninsula (off Southern Honshu) today. Tropical Storm Conditions w/ Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-117 kph) can be expected along these bands.
OUTER RAINBANDS - spreading & affecting the whole of Japan. Tropical Depression Conditions w/ moderate to strong winds (30-61 kph) can be expected along these bands (click here to know more about Rainbands).
6-12HR TOTAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATION - from 5 up to 50 mm (low to medium rainfall) can be expected along the outer & inner rainbands...with isolated amounts of up to 100 mm (med-high) near the center of MA-ON (INENG). (click to open NOAA's eTRaP graphic).
COASTAL STORM SURGE FLOODING - possible 4 to 5 feet above normal tide levels...accompanied by large and dangerous battering waves can be expected along the coastal and beach front areas of Kyushu, Shikoku, & Southern Honshu today until Wednesday. Minimal damage is likely on this type of storm surge. Danger from Rip Currents or Rip Tides can be expected along the beach-front areas of Japan and the outlying islands of Okinawa, Ryukyu, Chichijima, Iwo To and other neaby areas.

REMARKS (for Meteorologists): 2 AM (18 GMT) TUE 19 JULY POSITION: 30.8N 132.8E.
*TYPHOON (TY) 08W (MA-ON), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 448 NM SOUTHWEST OF
TOKYO, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED NORTHWARD AT 11 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS TIGHTLY CURVED
SPIRAL BANDING EXTENDING OUTWARD FROM THE CENTER OF TY MA-ON WITH
THE MAJORITY OF CONVECTION CONSOLIDATING IN THE NORTHERN AND EASTERN
QUADRANT. A 181752Z 89 GHZ MICROWAVE SATELLITE IMAGE ALSO SHOWS
MOST OF THE CONVECTIVE BANDING POSITIONED ALONG THE EASTERN AND
NORTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE SYSTEM. RECENT ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY DEPICTS GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW WITH DIFFLUENCE IMPROVING IN THE
NORTHEASTERN QUADRANT. SLIGHTLY DRYER AIR IS WRAPPING INTO THE
WESTERN AND SOUTHWESTERN QUADRANT, WHICH MAY BE SUPPRESSING
CONVECTION IN THIS REGION. THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 75 KNOTS IS
BASED ON DVORAK INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T4.5 FROM PGTW, KNES, AND
RJTD. MA-ON CONTINUES TO TRACK ALONG THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE
SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE CENTERED TO THE EAST OF THE SYSTEM AND IS
EXPECTED TO TURN SHARPLY EASTWARD NEAR 33N LATITUDE AS WEST TO
NORTHWESTERLY FLOW BEGINS TO MODIFY THE STEERING RIDGE. AS THE
CURRENT STEERING RIDGE BEGINS TO WEAKEN EAST OF JAPAN AND A MORE
DOMINANT RIDGE BUILDS TO THE NORTHWEST, MA-ON IS EXPECTED TO TAKE A
SLIGHTLY SOUTHWARD DIP IN TRACK AFTER TAU 48. TY 08W IS EXPECTED TO
MAINTAIN INTENSITY DURING THE NEXT 12 HOURS BEFORE DECREASING
SLIGHTLY AS IT BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH THE TERRAIN OF SHIKOKU AND
HONSHU, JAPAN. INTENSITY SHOULD CONTINUE TO WEAKEN SLIGHTLY AS MA-ON
TREKS EASTWARD OFF THE COAST OF JAPAN THROUGH TAU 72. INCREASED
DIFFLUENCE, CONTINUED FAVORABLE SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND LOW
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR WILL ALLOW MA-ON TO INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY AT TAU 96
BEFORE BEGINNING EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION BY TAU 120. NUMERICAL
MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT; THEREFORE THIS FORECAST IS IN
GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THE MODEL CONSENSUS...(more info)
