No Hazardous Wind Watches are in effect for Japan.


 Hazardous Wind Watch status is announced when hazardous winds from tornadoes, downbursts and other phenomena associated with cumulonimbus clouds are likely.
 The status remains effective for around an hour after its announcement.

 When Hazardous Wind Watch status is announced, pay attention to the sky and check Radar and Nowcast (Tornado) information to determine risk areas and find out how conditions are expected to develop.
 Take refuge in a safe place (such as a sturdy building) if cumulonimbus clouds approach.
