TD 25 Update #2 (FINAL)

Tropical Depression 25W is now beginning to dissipate in the waters east of Vietnam. It was last located approximately 630km east of Ho Chi Minh City. Maximum sustained winds are estimated to be around 45kph. JTWC has given their final warning for 25W this morning.

This short lived system never really got it going as it had to battle moderate wind shear and cooler sea surface temperatures. Nevertheless, there is still some convective activity associated with the circulation and still has the chance to bring scattered showers across portions of Eastern Vietnam; although rainfall amounts should not be that heavy.

This will also be our final update for TD 25W. Rest of the Western Pacific is quiet.
Issued (10 UTC) 6pm PhT 120511
