Latest satellite image shows convective activity is almost non-existent with only a few high clouds surrounding the circulation. The low-level center remains fully exposed as it struggles amidst the unfavorable condition in the South China Sea.

Tropical Depression Krosa will approach the Vietnamese Coast later tonight and could bring light rains along with breezy conditions. It should fully dissipate by tomorrow as it moves further inland.
