    Thanks for the updates Cookie. Fitow has been really struggling over the last few days, it lost typhoon status last night but has regained it this morning. Initially, rapid intensification was forecast, but Fitow has only managed a peak of 80kts so far (cat 1 on saffir-simpson scale). Some slight strengthening is anticipated over warm sea temps but the main reason for Fitow not intensifying rapidly is because of dry air entering the storm from the north- which Fitow hasn't dealt with very well, hence the storm not being any stronger than a cat 1 so far. As you can see, the storm doesn't exactly look amazing at the moment:

    There could be a little shear ahead of Fitow too, though nothing too strong it may hinder any rapid intensification aswell. I don't think this storm will get that much stronger than it is now- it is forecasted to reach cat 2 status which is plausable given the very warm sea temps.

    From JTWC:

    TYPHOON (TY) 10W (FITOW) HAS WEAKENED SLIGHTLY OVER THE

    PAST 06 HOURS AS IT CONTINUES TO DISPLAY A RAGGED BANDING EYE.

    THE STORM HAS TRACKED NORTHWARD DUE TO THE INFLUENCE OF

    AN INCREASINGLY MERIDIONAL MIDLATITUDE TROUGH OVER THE KOREAN

    PENINSULA. THE STORM HAS ACCELERATED FROM A 10 KT SIX-HOURLY

    SPEED TO A 12 KT SIX-HOURLY SPEED.

    B. THE INITIAL INTENSITY FOR TY 10W IS 75 KTS, BASED

    ON 4.5 DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM RJTD AND PGTW, AND A 061200Z AMSU

    INTENSITY ESTIMATE OF 80 KTS. THE STORM HAS GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW

    INDUCED BY THE MIDLATITUDE TROUGH TO THE WEST. ANIMATED INFRARED

    IMAGERY INDICATES THE DEEPEST CONVECTION IS CURRENTLY CONFINED TO

    THE EASTERN SEMI-CIRCLE. THE STORM CENTER IS CURRENTLY 100 NM

    SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF TOKYO, JAPAN. A 060932Z SSMI MICROWAVE IMAGE SHOWS

    THE CENTER OF THE CIRCULATION APPROACHING THE COAST OF JAPAN.

    3. FORECAST REASONING.

    A. THE FORECAST REASONING HAS NOT CHANGED.

    B. TY 10W WILL CONTINUE ITS POLEWARD TRACK AND ACCELERATE AS

    IT ENCOUNTERS THE MIDLATITUDE WESTERLY FLOW. THE STRONG POLEWARD

    OUTFLOW CHANNEL WILL ALLOW FOR SOME SLIGHT INTENSIFICATION PRIOR TO

    LANDFALL OVER SOUTHERN JAPAN NEAR TAU 06. AFTER LANDFALL,

    THE STORM WILL BEGIN EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION AS IT ENCOUNTERS THE

    MIDLATITUDE BAROCLINIC ZONE. MOST OF THE AVAILABLE MODELS, TO INCLUDE

    NOGAPS AND GFS, FORECAST AN UNLIKELY SCENARIO IN WHICH THE MIDLEVEL

    TC VORTEX ROTATES AROUND THE MIDLATITUDE UPPER LEVEL LOW AND INTO THE

    SEA OF JAPAN. THUS, THE CURRENT FORECAST TRACK REMAINS EAST OF

    CONSENSUS, CLOSEST TO THE EGRR MODEL. EXTRATROPICAL TRANSITION SHOULD

    BE COMPLETE NEAR TAU 36, JUST PAST MISAWA.

    I am in Tokyo, near the bay area. Hence, right in the path of Fitow..

    We evacuated the school where I work midday on Thursday (local time) as many of our students and staff travel by train and kept it closed during Friday.

    In the area where I live, we had approximately 110km/h sustained wind with some gusts up to 160km/h - one gust was much higher. Accompanying the wind was the torrential rain.

    Minimal damage was done in the area where I live - although the sports centre on the factory roof that I can see from my balcony partly collapsed. A few trees down and not much else.

    The skies literally cleared at around midday on Friday to a 30C humid day
