TD Pakhar Update #10 (FINAL)

Pakhar has now dissipated while moving across Cambodia/Vietnam area. The remnant of the storm was last located approximately 240km northeast of Phnom Penh. Much of the convection is now being sheared apart although rains are still falling for parts of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.

Nearly 50mm of rain fell this morning in places like Quy Nhon, Nha Trang, and Phan Thiet; that brings the total to 150 to 200mm of rain brought by Pakhar these past 36 hours. Ho Chi Minh, meanwhile, fared better and recorded "only" 75mm of rain these past 24 hours. Rains will then move northward, primarily affecting Laos and Northern Vietnam today and into tomorrow. Southern Vietnam and Cambodia will have clearer skies and less chances of rain.

Elsewhere in the Tropics, all is quiet except for some afternoon thunderstorms in parts of the Philippines. Furthermore, easterly waves will continue to bring scattered light rains across Eastern Luzon and Bicol Region. Nearly 100mm of rain has fallen in Daet while about 60mm of rain was reported in Infanta, Quezon. Rest of the country will have generally clear skies and warm temperatures.

This is the final update for TD Pakhar. Our next 3-Day Forecast update will be on Wednesday, April 4.
