AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Jason Nicholls said: “Chanthu will lose wind intensity as it continues to push northward [and stalls] near or just east of Shanghai into Wednesday.”

Forecasters said the main impact of the storm is likely to be heavy rainfall.

Mr Nicholls added: “Heavy rain and flooding will be a concern across Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces from [Monday] into Thursday.”

Predominantly, up to two inches of rainfall is expected to hit the Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, while 12 inches is predicted to hit eastern coastal areas closest to where Chanthu churns.

Rainfall amounts of up to 18 inches could fall nearest to the coast, with a maximum rainfall amount of 30 inches expected in some regions.
