Latest satellite image shows convective clouds are still present and are still bringing widespread rains across parts of Laos and Vietnam. However, the circulation center is getting more difficult to discern on satellite and overall organization of the system is getting poorer this morning.

Kujira will continue dissipating but rains could linger over the next few days. This is the final update for Tropical Depression Kujira.

Rest of the Western Pacific Basin remains quiet but chances for tropical cyclone formation increase as we move into the weekend.
