Tropical Depression Nalgae Update #15 w/ Video (Brief)

Tropical Depression Nalgae continues to weaken as it nears the coast of Vietnam. It was last located approximately 390km southeast of Hanoi or about 190km north northeast of Hue. It is moving west southwestward at 10kph. Maximum sustained winds have decreased further to 45kph gusting to 70kph.

Nalgae is now largely disorganized and convective activity has significantly weakened as well. Nevertheless, it will still bring light to moderate rains across Central and Northern Vietnam and eventually into Laos and Thailand. We expect around 50 to 100mm of rain to fall tonight.

Nalgae is forecast to make landfall by 1am tonight (Vietnam Time), approximately 400km south of Hanoi or just north of Hue. It will then move into Laos and should dissipate by tomorrow.

Invest 90W in the Philippine Sea remains very weak with a full-exposed low-level center. It is located approximately 600km east of Mindanao. Computer models are still developing this system into a weak depression sometime this weekend so we'll have to continue to watch.


Video Update

We'll have another update tomorrow.
