Typhoon Pabuk should bring a glancing blow to Japan in the next several days as the system tracks across the warm waters of the West Pacific Ocean.
Regardless of the exact track, dangerous surf from Pabuk will impact Japan through the middle of the week.
Pabuk, which developed into a tropical storm early Saturday morning and a typhoon Monday night, local time, will remain in an environment conducive for some strengthening for the next day or two.
The cyclone already dumped nearly a foot of rain across Guam this past weekend. On Tuesday, a strong cold front pushing toward Japan began to steer the storm in a more northerly direction.
The cold front is expected to cross Japan during the middle and latter part of the week which will help to capture Pabuk, turn it northeasterly, and steer it just to the east of the mainland.
The timing of the cold front crossing Japan is crucial to determining exactly when Pabuk will get picked up and steered toward the north and northeast.
If the cold front is slower in getting to Japan, Pabuk would pose a much more serious threat for heavy rain, strong winds, and a dangerous storm surge to the country. However, this is not the expected outcome at this time.
Interests in Japan are encouraged to keep abreast of the latest track and potential impacts that Pabuk may bring to the region.
