Sigh of relief as Haikui dissipates

Good evening from the Western Pacific Weather team.

Those in Vietnam will not have to face the threat of another tropical system for the moment as Haikui has dissipated in the South China Sea. Originally thought to have potential impacts for those in Vietnam, the system struggled to maintain its strength and fell apart during the day Sunday. There is a chance, however, of scattered showers during the afternoon hours on Monday, especially for those in central Vietnam, but otherwise, the weather should remain relatively calm and dry.

The Western Pacific, for the moment, should remain calm when it comes to tropical development during the next 24 hours.
