Tropical Depression Haikui Update #13 (FINAL)

Tropical Depression Haikui is now dissipating over Eastern China. The system was last located approximately 450km west of Shanghai. Maximum sustained winds are now down to 45kph with gusts of up to 65kph. Haikui remains nearly stationary over the province of Anhui.

Radar from CMA

Current radar from Eastern China shows widespread rain continues to fall across many provinces in the region. 50 to 150mm of rain were reported overnight across many stations. All in all, Haikui brought anywhere between 300 to 500mm of rain in the past 3 days. Right now, much of the rains are situated across  the provinces of Anhui, Jiangxi, and Jiangshu. The China Meteorological Administration continues to issue Blue Warnings for strong winds today, as well as Yellow Warning for the possibility of heavy rains amounting up to 200mm.

Haikui will continue dissipating today as it interacts with a frontal system moving into Eastern China. This front will scoop the remnants of Haikui and bring it to the northeast. The system is not expected to regenerate over water although it could bring rains across the Korean Peninsula in the next 2 to 3 days.

Both the JMA and JTWC have given their final warnings on Haikui. Likewise, this will be our final update on Haikui. We'll have our update on Tropical Storm Kirogi later today.
