EDIT: Finally works now, so ignore below. But must have been some temporary glitch putting up a "Your browser needs an install or activation of Adobe Flash" sign over a blank video box.

Can't believe NHK depends upon relic Adobe Flash for video play, or still doesn't adapt to newer substitutes. (Updates for the degraded plugin will supposedly end completely in 2020). Here's a youtube version of the NHK forecast, but probably old by now, for those with browsers that deactivate the unsafe fossil by default or don't install it anymore: https://youtu.be/7OD4x52GnLs

Rains ease in southern Japan but landslide risks persist

Does more water vapour in the atmosphere mean more clouds, supersaturation, or more rain expected?

The theory goes(by many physicists and climatologists)
The precipitation level will rise.
this will obviously bring more rain

simple basic science
