Typhoon 18

There is a typhoon coming.
Yesterday it rained.
Today it rained.
It is raining now.
It will rain tonight.
It will rain tomorrow.
It will rain Thursday.
It will rain Friday.
It will be a beautiful day on Saturday - blue sky, clear air - pollution and haze swept away by the typhoon winds, Mt Fuji visible from the balcony.
Courtesy of the Japanese meteorological agency you can see the path that the typhoon, the 18th of the season, will take.  The one to the south is affecting the Philippines.  It is unusual for a typhoon to move over the whole Japanese archipelago  - often it goes up one coast or the other.
