Here in the center of Shanghai it has so far been pretty quiet. It was a little breezy this morning, now mostly calm and dry so far. They have a yellow typhoon warning signal in place, the second of a 4 step system. Not a lot of information in English other than in the Shanghai Daily.

I just put new batteries in my weather station which reports to Weather Underground and now the stupid thing has stopped working altogether! Grr......

BASED ON THE MSI AND AFOREMENTIONED MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH GOOD
CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON CONSISTENT DVORAK
INTENSITY ESTIMATES FROM ALL REPORTING AGENCIES. UPPER-LEVEL
ANALYSIS INDICATES TS 16W IS LOCATED IN AN AREA OF STRONG (25 TO 30

The Yellow Typhoon warning was issued for Shanghai at 09am on Sep 22nd (today).
The message is only in Chinese but a translation does say that during the next 24 hours winds of Beaufort level 7-9 are expected for the Yangtze River estuary areas and Beaufort level 8-10 for coastal areas.

The JMA forecast is slightly more east and has the centre passing over Shanghai

Thanks for the Shanghai links!

It started raining about 4:30pm local time but it's been pretty light. Winds are also light. Radar shows heavier rain is not too far away.

The 12Z JMA forecast now shows the trajectory slightly east of Shanghai.
Fung-Wong has been moving slower than originally forecast and is likely to turn east just before the centre reaches Shanghai - hopefully this reduces the total rainfall.

Moderate to heavy rain in Shanghai for the last view hours. Pudong airport is reporting gusts to about 45 mph but in the city it is merely breezy.

In addition to the still posted Yellow Typhoon alert, there is also a yellow rainstorm alert.

The doppler radar this morning shows all the heavy rain offshore (to the east of Shanghai).
Shanghai did get a bit lucky and the worst part did miss the city; however yesterday Zhejiang province was badly hit
(Zhejiang is south of Shanghai and had a Red Typhoon alert last night)
