The flooding rainfall over China from the weekend continues to push off to the east and is currently drenching parts of southern Japan, with some downpours expected to reach Tokyo Monday night.
Rainfall over the weekend in parts of China approached 20 inches (50 cm) as a cold front pushed off to the east. Just northwest of Hong Kong, rainfall totals of 10-20 inches (25-50 cm) were scattered over the region.
Sunday night into Monday, the heaviest rainfall shifted into South Korea and southwest Japan. Rainfall amounts of 50-100 mm (2-4 inches) were common across far southern South Korea as well as Kyushu, Chugoku and Shikoku in Japan.
The heaviest rainfall will reach Tokyo Monday night, local time with downpours capable of bringing up to 25 mm (1 inch) to parts of the area. Some lingering rain and drizzle will be possible on Tuesday, but rainfall will be generally light.
Heavier rain will fall across areas south of Tokyo, including Nagoya and Osaka, Monday night with just a leftover shower by Tuesday morning.
The bulk of the rainfall will be moving off the eastern coastline by Tuesday morning, but dry weather will not last for long for southern Japan.
A fast-moving wave of low pressure will skirt southern Japan with rainfall from later Wednesday into Thursday morning. Much of this rainfall will stay south of Tokyo where just a brief shower is expected.
