Hey Guys, I have a question. The West Pacific has had 21 typhoons this year - 13 of which were majors. I was wondering how many can be expected in the average season. Thanks!

WESTPAC has the most numerous and intense tropical storms of all the basins in the World. Behind that are the Hurricanes in the Eastern Pacific and Atlantic, and then the storms in the Bay of Bengal region. Normally there are about 17 or so typhoons that occur in the Western Pacific each year (with an average of 27 tropical storms). Sometimes, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center has to start another list of names because there have been so many storms that they exhausted the list for the current year.

The 1971-2000 climatology values were 27.2 ts, 17.0 typhoons and 8.2 supertyphoons respectively.

So, as far as 2004 & supertyphoons, it was definitely way above average.

While Talas clings on, a new system seems to be forming. It really does just go on and on out there.
