Latest satellite image shows the convection associated with Bebinca has significantly weakened as it moved over land. Nevertheless, rains continue to fall across Northern Vietnam and some places have already surpassed the 250mm accumulation mark.

Bebinca is forecast to dissipate by tomorrow as it continue to track northward into China. Rains will continue across the Indochina Region particularly in Vietnam and Laos.

This is our final update for Tropical Depression Bebinca. Rest of the Western Pacific looks like it will be cyclone-free for the next few days.
