Haiyan (Bagyong Yolanda) has weakened to a Tropical Depression and is finally dissipating over the Guangxi Province. The center was last located approximately 60km northeast of Nanning City. Maximum sustained winds are now down to 45kph with gusts of up to 65kph. TD Haiyan is currently moving northeastward at 20kph.

Latest satellite image shows the center of Haiyan becoming increasingly disorganized and difficult to identify. Convection is still present but is starting to be sheared to the northeast of the circulation center. Observations from Nanning City also indicate a decrease in wind speeds and an increase in atmospheric pressure, both of which point to Haiyan weakening.
Radar from CMA
Despite the weakening, latest radar from Guangxi Province shows widespread rains still linger across the region. Many places have already received as much as 400mm of rain since Saturday and even parts of Vietnam received heavy rains killing at least thirteen (13) dead according to one report. We haven't received any damage reports from China just yet.
Rains will continue across Guangxi and will spread into Guangdong Province by tomorrow and could bring as much as 100mm of rain. For the latest radar images and forecasts from China, please click HERE (CMA Website)
