Sanjo in Niigata pref hit 40.4C today, a new national record high temperature for September :(

The previous record (set 20 years ago almost to the day) was 39.7C (Saitama), but the previous record for the Hokuriku region was 38.5, so if comparing like-for-like it's a jump of almost 2C.
Following on from this, Hokkaido recorded its highest ever September temp today at 34.4C.
Once again, seems to the the fault of a typhoon passing to the west and sucking in the hot air from the south.

I don't know where to post Autumn Weather related thingy, is it here:p?

It seems forecasting accurate typhoon routes a few day ahead is still a bit difficult even in 2020. A few days ago, weather forecasters were saying "A typhoon is coming and it's likely to hit Tokyo - Ibaraki (It's where we own a hobby farm)", so we were a bit scared but actually, it's not hitting here. This is the forecast we saw a few days ago.

And this morning's forecast (the same typhoon)
