Adding fury to southwest Monsoon season which is from June to September was tropical storm Pabuk, which from the coast of Japan brought to the Philippines torrential rain and extreme weather. Weather officials are predicting that the torrential rain will continue until Wednesday.

Monsoon rain is common in the Philippines, but its intensity has rapidly grown in the past few years; Last year the extreme weather was responsible for killing over fifty people.

In the Philippines two deaths have occurred and three people are still missing as a result of the storm.

Typhoon Pabuk Near Japan / Habagat Video Update

Severe Tropical Storm Pabuk is spinning off here near the Ogasawara bringing winds gusting up 86kph. Over 100kph was reported on Monday when the storm was a little closer to the island. Still sustained winds up to 80kph could be expected with gust higher. Heavy rainfall is also an issued with over 100mm expected on some of these islands.

Now Pabuk looks like its headed towards mainland Japan at first but what is going to happen is a upper level trough will be rolling in from the Sea of Japan and will hook the storm like a fish hook and pull it off to the North East Skirting the Japanese coastline. The islands south of Tokyo will take the brunt of the storm on Thursday but the good news the worst of the winds and rain should stay off shore from Honshu.

High waves will be a problem though for those in coastal areas. Breakers up to 7-8 meters high are very well possible.
