Friday evening Podul update

Tropical Storm Podul (32W) made landfall in southern Vietnam earlier today, bringing showers and thunderstorms to much southern Indochina.  Since landfall, JMA has downgraded the system into a tropical depression as it continues heading west.  Medium-range models continue moving the system through Cambodia and Thailand before emerging into the Bay of Bengal as a minor depression and tropical wave.  This scenario is very similar to Tropical Depression 30W (PAGASA name:  Wilma).

Media reports out of Vietnam this evening report locally heavy showers.  Flooding remains a threat as the ground is saturated from tropical rains recently, although significant damage does not appear to be a concern with Podul.
