Typhoon Tokage is a weakening tropical cyclone that will impact Japan over the next 24 hours. This will be the tenth tropical system to impact the island chain this season. Waves of 15 to 30 feet are possible along the eastern coastline of Japan. The system will likely be downgraded to a tropical storm before it makes landfall. Nonetheless, heavy rain and strong winds will sweep across the island. To the southeast, Typhoon Nock-Ten is slowly picking up steam. Though it is a relatively small circulation, it is packing sustained winds over 100 mph. The typhoon may pass far enough south of Guam to not have a major impact there. A gradual strengthening is expected as the typhoon tracks to the northwest.


There is no significant tropical activity across the Atlantic or eastern Pacific basins.
