Much of Japan is currently cleaning up from the soaking rains and high winds of Tropical Storm Guchol that crossed through the island nation Tuesday evening local time.
Many locations picked up over 1 inch (25 mm) of rain in 24 hours from the storm, with some cities accumulating over 3 inches (76 mm) in the same time period. Mountainous regions were the hardest hit, receiving over 6 inches (152 mm), according to data accessed by Accuweather.com.
The world's largest city was not spared from Guchol's onslaught. Tokyo recorded 2.85 inches (72.39 mm) of rain from the storm along with sustained winds of 56 mph (90.12 km/h) with typhoon-force wind gusts to 76 mph (122 km/h).
Guchol's passage also resulted in the evacuation of more than 10,000 residents in the northeastern city of Ishinomaki, according to Bloomberg News.
While the impacts of summer typhoons are relatively common in Japan, direct impacts of two tropical systems in the same week are much more rare.
Topical Storm Talim, located about 180 miles west-southwest of Taipei, Taiwan, as of Wednesday evening local time, is on course to trek along the Pacific coast of Japan early Friday morning. The system will bring another round of heavy rain and high winds to the already inundated country.
Talim has already caused notable rainfall rates over southwestern sections of Taiwan. Portions of Pingtung County and Kaoshiung City accumulated over 7.87 inches (200 mm) of rain in just 18 hours, according to the Central Weather Bureau.
The storm is reported to have sustained winds of 51 mph (82 km/h) with gusts to 63 mph (101 km/h). Talim is not forecast to strengthen to typhoon strength before reaching Japan as it will spin with an area of high vertical wind shear while interacting with the coasts of China and Taiwan.
Regardless of intensity, Talim is almost certain to bring another period of heavy rain to Japan, worsening the threat for flooding and mudslides in a region eager for drier weather.
