In particular, monthly precipitation amount in western Japan was the heaviest on record for October since 1946. Monthly sunshine durations were significantly below normal in northern, eastern and western Japan. Monthly mean temperatures were significantly above normal in Okinawa/Amami, due to warm southerly wind. Eastern Japan, western Japan and Okinawa/Amami experienced heavy rain that caused river overflows and landslides, due to the passage of the typhoon LAN and influences from fronts.
