Quick intensification ensued and Tembin reached its peak intensity as a low-end Category 2 typhoon as assessed by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center on December 24. Unfavorable conditions enhanced by the winter monsoon caused Tembin to rapidly weaken shortly afterwards, before it ultimately dissipated on December 26 while just south of Vietnam.

At this time, the disturbance had a broad low-level circulation center, while atmospheric convection surrounding the system was poorly organized. During December 20, the JMA reclassified the system as a tropical depression, after atmospheric convection had started to wrap into the low-level circulation center (LLCC).

Over the next couple of days, the disturbance gradually developed further as it moved west-northwestwards within an area of favorable conditions for further development, including low vertical wind shear and warm sea surface temperatures of 30-31 °C. During December 16, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) classified the disturbance as a weak tropical depression, however they reclassified it as an area of low pressure during the following day.
