PDC Disaster Alert, displaying PDC Active Hazards, 3-hour precipitation accumulations,Tropical Cyclone segments, positions, for dissipating Tropical Cyclone Noru

Tropical Cyclone 07W (Noru) is dissipating…as it continues slowly moving across the Japanese Islands – Final Warning

Noru will continue crossing northern Japan…dropping locally heavy rain. Here’s the Forecast Rainfall graphic covering Japan and South Korea.

This heavy precipitation will heighten the risk for land and mudslides…across the rugged terrain of northern Honshu.

Another area of low pressure will move from China into Japan, bringing more downpours Wednesday through Friday, which may delay cleanup efforts from Noru…and cause some localized flooding.

Two deaths and about 50 injuries have been attributed to Noru so far, according to public broadcasting corporation NHK.

The storm has also caused widespread travel disruption, with more than 300 flights canceled.

Here’s a satellite image of this system…along with the looping satellite image

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center reports that satellite imagery shows Noru’s rapidly decaying deep convection, associated with a disorganized low level circulation center.

Animated radar imagery also shows a poorly-defined low level center, with fragmented cloud banding primarily over land. Surface observations are generally less than 10 knots, with reports near the center, from Awashima…northerly at 4-6 knots.

The JTWC track forecast to track eastward over Honshu, and is expected to dissipate over land within 12 hours.

Maximum sustained winds as of the JTWC Warning #76 were 25 knots with gusts of 35 knots

 

Eastern North Pacific

There are no current tropical cyclones

An area of low pressure could form a couple of hundred miles south of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula late this week in association with the remnants of Atlantic Tropical Storm Franklin after it moves across southern Mexico. Environmental conditions could be conducive for some re-development of the system while it moves toward the west-northwest or northwest near 10 mph.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent
