Tropical Storm Son-Tinh is intensifying as it moves across the South China Sea away from the Philippines. Convective activity continues to fire across the symmetrical central dense overcast. Both Joint Typhoon Warning Center and Japan Meteorological Agency are now forecasting Son-Tinh to become a Typhoon by as early as tomorrow. It is still forecast to make landfall in Northern Vietnam by either late Saturday evening or early Sunday morning. It will likely bring widespread rains and strong winds across Hanoi and the rest of Indochina.

Tropical Storm Son-Tinh will continue move northwestward across the South China Sea, likely becoming a Category 1 typhoon tomorrow. It will pass south of Hainan Island tomorrow but will still bring stormy conditions especially along the coast. Parts of Vietnam will also begin to experience heavy rains by tomorrow with the worst weather expected to occur in Northern Vietnam by late Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Hanoi and nearby areas should expect strong winds and rainfall amounts of up to 150mm. Son-Tinh will linger in the region through Monday before dissipating. Heavy rains also possible across Indochina and Southwestern China particularly in Guangxi Province.
