Tropical Storm Barrels Towards Japan as Olympics Begin

The long-awaited Tokyo Olympics is underway this weekend, and in addition to facing COVID challenges, a weather disturbance may disrupt the Games next week.

Tropical Storm Nepartak developed in the Philippine Sea and is barrelling towards mainland Japan by Tuesday, with Tokyo in the forecast cone.

Japan Meteorological Agency said Nepartak could bring "hazardous phenomena such as heavy rain, strong winds, and high waves." Winds speeds could reach over 50 mph on Monday, with potential landfall Tuesday north of Tokyo.
