Here’s what the computer models show According to the JTWC, upper level analysis reveals a marginally favorable environment with moderate 22 knot wind shear, offset by robust poleward outflow into the strong westerlies to the north. TS 14S is forecast to track north-northeastward to northeastward through 48 hours, and in the process tracking over the Kanto Plain region of Honshu. After 36 hours, the extratropical low will accelerate northeastward producing gale force winds over northern Honshu.
