Typhoon No. 13, also known as Typhoon Yun-yeung, is predicted to head northeast off the coast of Japan’s Tokaido region on Friday evening, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

The tempest will likely be downgraded to a tropical cyclone before making landfall early Saturday morning.

Rainfall is expected to reach around 150 millimeters in the Kanto, Koshinetsu and Tohoku regions by 6 p.m. on Saturday.

The JMA is urging caution over potential landslides, flooding in low-lying areas and overflowing rivers.
