A low-pressure area formed near the Marshall Islands early on August 25. It remained devoid of a low-level circulation center (LLCC) next day; however, the system developed further on August 27 that both of the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center upgraded it to a tropical depression, based on persistent deep convection wrapping into a consolidating LLCC. Early on August 28, the system was upgraded to a tropical storm with an international name Jebi assigned by JMA. On the 29th of August, The JMA upgraded the storm to a typhoon after it developed an eye with a central dense overcast, and underwent rapid intensification, and then intensified into the third super typhoon and also the second Category 5 typhoon of the season.
On September 4, Jebi made its first landfall over the southern part of Tokushima Prefecture at around 12:00 JST (03:00 UTC), crossed the Osaka Bay, made its second landfall over Kobe, Hyōgo Prefecture at around 14:00 JST (05:00 UTC), and moved over Osaka and Kyoto prefectures before ultimately emerging into the Sea of Japan shortly after 15:00 JST (06:00 UTC). Simultaneously, a cold front formed southwest of the typhoon, indicating the beginning of an . On September 5, after JTWC issued a final warning at 00:00 JST (15:00 UTC), Jebi was downgraded to a severe tropical storm at 03:00 JST (18:00 UTC) when it was located near the Shakotan Peninsula of Hokkaido. The storm completely transitioned into a storm-force off the coast of Primorsky Krai, Russia shortly before 10:00 VLAT (09:00 JST, 00:00 UTC). Later, the extratropical cyclone moved inland. The terrain of Khabarovsk Krai contributed to the steadily weakening trend as the system moved inland northwestward and then northward, before the extratropical low eventually dissipated northeast of Ayan early on September 7.
