Okinawa is a big deal and distribution may be affected
After the night of tomorrow, the 29th (Monday), Okinawa is expected to be a big storm centered on the Sakishima Islands, and the sea is very dangerous due to the addition of swells. The beach has already opened and it is the season for swimming, but please postpone leisure activities at the beach. It is safer to stay away from the coast as much as possible.
In addition, there is a risk of storms in the Sakishima Islands from around the 30th (Tuesday). As the typhoon moves slower, the impact on Okinawa and Amami is likely to last until around Friday, June 2nd. Just in case, please prepare for long-term stormy weather.
High pressure that holds the key to the future course
However, it is expected to gradually decelerate as high pressure blocks the course of the westward movement, and then slowly begin to move northward. Since the jet stream that sweeps the autumn typhoon is flowing near northern Japan, it is expected that you will not be able to ride the jet at this time.
After that, it is very difficult to predict the course because the upper winds that move the typhoon are weak. It is possible that the typhoon may begin to move northeast along the edge of the high pressure system, or it may stray around Okinawa for several days.
World Meteorological Agency Forecasts
Comparing these members, it can be said that the accuracy of the forecast is high with almost no prediction error up to the point south of Okinawa. members are expected to move northeast south of Honshu.
As the date approaches, the error is expected to shrink and the forecast will become more stable, so please continue to obtain new information from time to time.

Time when typhoons start to increase
The average number of typhoons in May is 1.0, which is about the same level as in December. As the number of typhoons peaks in August, the number of typhoons will begin to increase, so it would be a good idea to prepare for typhoons as soon as possible.
Typhoon No. 2’s name “Mawar” was proposed by Malaysia and is derived from the Malay word for “rose”.
