Northern Kyushu Faces Warmer, Wetter Summer Forecast

The Fukuoka District Meteorological Observatory predicts higher than average temperatures and possibly increased rainfall for Northern Kyushu from May to July. The long-term forecast highlights the potential risks of heatstroke and flooding, urging precautions. The warmer conditions are partly attributed to the diminishing El Niño phenomenon, while the region may also experience moist air flows conducive to precipitation. Meteorological changes prompt the observatory to enhance its rainfall prediction capabilities, including detailed forecasts by prefecture, to better prepare for the rainy season and ensure public safety.
