They were saying on the lunch time news the other day that due to El Nino this year the typhoon season might extend well into November

This'll be the third one to pass directly over Kansai. Let's hope it shifts north and passes over the Sea of Japan instead.

this time the path is more like what we are used to, coming up over Kyushu and along the Honshu line. By the time it reaches us, it should have weakened significantly.

The last 2 typhoon snuck up between Shikoku and Wakayama which basically left them full strength when they got to us.

It would be nice to see the sun for a few days, this relentless overcast gloom can be a bit depressing after a while and walking around our farmland is like walking through the Somme at the moment.

Luckily typhoon Trami has now been downgraded from 'Super Typhoon' status and is expected to weaken some more but it's still going to bring a lot of rain, possible up to 300mm in some places. Looking at it on satellite imagery you can see how truly massive it is so I think all of us can expect to be covered by it at some point.

Looks like it's predicted track across Japan has shifted a bit south so we're all in for a rough ride on Sunday

Let's hope it get downgraded again.

There's another tropical storm brewing out in the Pacific that may strengthen into a typhoon so we're not out of the woods yet.

As they say, it never rains but pours. So here is the predicted track for typhoon #25 (Kong-rey)

Still quite gusty here but must say this time round was a doddle compared to the previous 2. I hope those further along are well and stay safe.
