Yagi is now transitioning into an extra-tropical low. The low-level center is now fully exposed and the system as a whole is becoming more asymmetrical. Light rains continue to fall across parts of Southeastern Honshu including Izu Islands. Breezy conditions (winds of 20 to 30kph) are also affecting the said regions.

Tropical Storm Yagi is forecast to continue weakening and could complete the extra-tropical transition by tomorrow. Weather conditions along the southern coast should improve by tomorrow as well.

We'll have another update tomorrow.
