VIS 2012-12-09 0357Z (from NRL)

Severe westerly wind shear is killing BOPHA… Nearly all deep convection is sheared to the east… leaving the low level circulation centre fully exposed near 18N 119E… BOPHA has weakened rapidly into a Tropical Depression…

The exposed centre of BOPHA will move equatorward within low level northeasterly flow near the western coast of Luzon… The system will dissipate in the next couple of days…
