JMA announced that southern Kyushu (Miyazaki and Kagoshima prefectures, except Tokara islands) are in rainy season on May 11, which is earlier than the normal.

Thus far, May seems to be more cloudy and rainy than usual in the part of Kansai where I am. Wondering if rainy season will start early here as well.

It was a bit humid on my way home here in Fukuoka, too. Rain front is approaching up north tomorrow. The season is coming soon.

Northern Kyushu is in rainy season on May 15 along with Chugoku and Shikoku. Kinki is in the matter of time.

Yes, definitely has a rainy season feel here in Kobe/Osaka. Several days of drizzle (that's a Seattle word) recently and few truly clear, blue sky days. Ugh.

Kinki and Tokai is also in rainy season today. We had wet southern wind in Fukuoka all day today. We were in the first summer air conditioning.

Dark, grey morning. The air feels heavy. Cloudy and rainy is the forecast all week. But! Just received fresh French roast coffee beans. I will survive.

Yep, it is very muggy in Kyoto.
