TS Khanun is forecast to skirt the western coast of South Korea tomorrow morning bringing scattered rains and gusty winds along the coastal areas. Seoul could also see some rain showers and breezy winds as the storm passes to the west. Khanun is forecast to make landfall near Haeju or Kaesong in North Korea tomorrow afternoon. It should then rapidly weaken as it moves inland, passing near Pyongyang tomorrow evening as a Tropical Depression. Khanun could then dissipate completely as early as Friday morning.

In the video, we are also looking at Invest 92W which could become a cyclone in the next 2-3 days. Thanks for watching, stay safe!
