Khanun once again a tropical storm

Khanun is really struggling with its movement over southern China as the latest update from the Japan Meteorological Agency shows a downgrade for the system to a tropical storm.

In fact, the latest satellite imagery shows a significant loosening of its tropical characteristics and is having a hard time keeping itself together. This could mean better news for those in the northern areas of Vietnam as the region has been dealing with serious mudslides and flooding last week.

Nevertheless, breezy conditions and some occasional heavy rainfall will still be possible over the next couple of days before the system dissipates. Thankfully, it does look like the storm is significantly weaker than its original form just 24 hours ago.
