Torrential rain forecast for southwestern Japan

Tokyo, May 27 (UNI) Japan's weather agency warned of torrential downpours in some parts of the southwestern prefectures of Kagoshima and Miyazaki from Monday night through Tuesday, calling for caution as the rows of clouds may suddenly increase the risk of disasters.
The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said Monday that rain is becoming heavier, especially along the Pacific, due to a warm, moist air mass flowing into a front stretching from a low-pressure system hovering over the Sea of Japan.
Very heavy rain and localized thunderstorms may hit, the JMA said, adding that linear rain bands could form in Miyazaki and Kagoshima in particular.
