Superimposed on the rainfall amounts are storm tracks, with darker shades of red corresponding with stronger storms. Guchol traveled roughly northward, east of the Philippines, and Talim skirted the coast of southeastern China. The heaviest rainfall occurred west of the Philippines and Taiwan, and southwest of Japan. A band of moderately heavy rain also followed the track of Guchol.
Talim lasted as a tropical storm from June 18 to 20. Guchol strengthened to a tropical storm on June 12, to a typhoon on June 14, and to a super typhoon on June 16. It retained typhoon strength until June 19. The Mainichi reported that Guchol weakened after making landfall but still brought heavy rains and high winds to eastern and northeastern Japan.
This map is based on data from the Multisatellite Precipitation Analysis produced at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, which estimates rainfall by combining measurements from many satellites and calibrating them using rainfall measurements from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite.
