Typhoon Nanmodal, now weakened, may provide some drought relief for coastal sections of southern China. Taiwan and the Philippines, however have taken the brunt of the storm. South and southeast Asia continue to see better rainfall totals and better rainfall distribution. Seasonably dry weather continues in the Middle East.
Moisture has continued to be plentiful across Burma and Thailand. There have also been notable improvements across parts of Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. These areas are generally reliant on (preferably) weak typhoons coming in from the east. Those have not been common at all this season. Unusual inflow of moisture from the west has held off any drought.
Seasonably dry weather continues across the Middle East, although typical showers along the Black and Caspian Seas, have been slightly heavier than normal. This likely will have no significant impact on Iran or Turkey.
