Tropical Storm Tembin has made landfall in South Korea earlier this morning and is moving into the Sea of Japan.  It has weakened from a Severe Tropical Storm and is currently located roughly 180km southwest of Seoul. It is moving north northeastward at 45kph.

Radar from KMA

Latest radar from South Korea showing widespread rains continue to impact the region. Many stations have recorded 50 to 100mm of rain since Tembin made landfall this morning; some stations have actually recorded 160mm of rain. Unfortunately, another 50 to 100mm of rain could fall tonight especially along the western sections of North Korea.

Aside from the rains, winds of 60 to 100kph have been reported this morning but have since weakened. Right now, Seoul is reporting winds of around 40kph. As Tembin moves rapidly northeastward, conditions in the region should begin to improve tonight and into tomorrow.

Tembin is forecast to move into the Sea of Japan and could transition into an extra-tropical cyclone tomorrow (Friday).
