Travel Alert October 2019: Tropical Storm Neoguri Affecting Northern Japan

If northern Japan is in your travel plans over the next couple of days, you may want to consider delaying your travel — or, at least, keep yourself updated as to the latest information pertaining to the weather — due to Tropical Storm Neoguri.

Travel Alert October 2019: Tropical Storm Neoguri Affecting Northern Japan

Maximum sustained winds of this storm — which is located approximately 300 miles southwest of Tokyo and is moving east northeast at approximately 14 miles per hour — are 50 miles per hour, with wind gusts of up to 65 miles per hour.

No landfall of Tropical Storm Neoguri is expected, as its path is forecast to continue off of the eastern coast of Japan — but portions of northern Japan will still experience rain and wind as a result of this tropical weather system. This storm already produced up to seven inches of rain in parts of southern Japan earlier today, Monday, October 21, 2019.

While this storm is expected to cause only minimal damage, another tropical weather system bears watching: Typhoon Bualoi is a Category 4 storm which is currently located greater than 200 miles north-northeast of Guam and moving northwest at 14 miles per hour; and this storm may reach Japan by as early as Saturday, October 26, 2019.

Flight Waivers, Delays and Cancellations

If you are traveling to northern Japan over the next couple of days, expect delays and cancellations of flights. Keep up to date on the latest information pertaining to this tropical weather system which may adversely affect your travel plans. Better yet, postponing or canceling your trip might be a better option — no matter which mode of travel you plan on taking.

If you have a flight scheduled, your flight may be delayed or canceled — and you may be eligible for a waiver of a fee to change your itinerary. If you are driving in any of these areas, watch out for deteriorating weather conditions and traffic problems.
