Rain in the forecast accurate?

We are coming to Tokyo next week, and the forecast shows about half the days with rain. We have learned through our travels not to read too much into this, however we just want to know how to pack. Does this mean rain all day, a little spitting, etc etc?

Thanks

Rain can vary a lot this time of year. It could be anything. That said, "disposable" umbrellas can be found at any convenience store, supermarket, etc. etc. for usually 300~500 yen, so don't need to worry about that. I would pack extra socks just in case though

Also, here's a page that shows the current radar over Tokyo, which is updated every 5 minutes:

EDIT: Looks like there are no looming typhoons other than the current one:

and make sure your shoes are the type that dry quick unless you bring several pairs.

mkjr is right about the shoes -- in fact, dont worry about the socks, because you can pick those up at convenience stores too
