Plain Language Summary: During the autumn rainy season, typhoons located far from Japan sometimes cause significant precipitation in Japan. In this study, we characterized remote precipitation events (PRE cases) in September for 40 years from 1980 to 2019. We also analyzed cases in which remote precipitation did not occur despite approaching typhoons (non-PRE cases), as well as cases in which heavy precipitation was not affected by typhoons (non-typhoon cases). In particular, the comparison of the PRE cases and the non-PRE cases revealed differences regarding the extension of the subtropical high and the location of the jet streak.
