Typhoon Nari continues to move closer to the coast of Vietnam. It was last located approximately 330km east southeast of Da Nang, Vietnam or about 820km southeast of Hanoi, Vietnam. Maximum sustained winds remain at 155kph with gusts of up to 195kph. Typhoon Nari is moving westward at 20kph.

Latest satellite image shows the central dense overcast of Nari starting to move closer to the Vietnamese Coast. Strong convective activity is still abundant and the eye is still trying to form. Outer rain bands are starting to impact the coast in Central Vietnam and even extends north into the island of Hainan. Heavy rains, strong winds, and storm surge should be expected in Da Nang and nearby areas today.

Typhoon Nari is forecast to make landfall just south of the port city of Da Nang in Vietnam later this afternoon. Winds of up to 180kph, storm surges of up to 4ft., and heavy rains that could accumulate up to 200mm are possible today and into tomorrow.

Nari will quickly lose strength after landfall but will still bring widespread rains into much of the region including Laos and Cambodia by tomorrow.

We'll have another update later today.
