The western Pacific continues its streak of producing monster cyclones with the latest having its sights set on Japan.

Super Typhoon Nanmadol had sustained winds of around 150 mph and forecasters warned the cyclone would likely stay strong enough through landfall to produce major impacts for many of the Japanese islands.

Landfall is expected to occur over the weekend, but the storm system is forecast to linger over the country through at least Tuesday while producing damaging winds.

5 DIFFERENT NAMES FOR HURRICANES AROUND THE WORLD

The forecast cone is similar but much further north than Super Typhoon Hinnamnor that impacted the region earlier this month.

Japan’s metrological agency warned of strong winds, high waves, high tides, landslides and flooding of low-lying areas for millions of residents.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center said cooler waters, upper levels winds and land interaction will lead to the slow deterioration of the system after landfall.

The JTWC considers any tropical cyclone with winds of at least 150 mph a “Super Typhoon.”

Forecast models show future remnants of Nanmadol will get caught up in the northern jet stream and could provide additional rainfall to Alaska by the end of the upcoming workweek.

Due to the system making landfall in Asia, the remnants aren’t expected to be as severe for the Last Frontier as what as was produced by former Typhoon Merbok.

The remnants created hurricane-fore winds and seas that topped 50 feet along the Bering Sea.
