Owing to favorable conditions, Phanfone intensified into a severe tropical storm on December 23, and further intensified into a Category 2 typhoon shortly before making landfall near Salcedo in Eastern Samar, causing drastic flooding and mudslides in the region weeks after Typhoon Kammuri (2019)[162] The system then recommenced its rapid intensification, strengthening to Category 3 six hours later, and proceeded to steadily intensify further to Category 4 later the same day. [163] The second system developed near the Federal States of Micronesia and slowly moved westwards over the next few days before it was last noted as tropical depression during May 11. [143] By 12:00 UTC on October 19, Neoguri became a typhoon as it neared the Ryukyu Islands of Japan. On August 17, another depression formed and the JMA started monitoring it. ... Rainfall from Krosa has soaked southern Japan since Wednesday. The total reported damages of the typhoon is at $67.2 million (or ₱3.44 billion) and the total fatalities is 50 deaths (with 55 missing). [5] The outlook noted that one to two tropical cyclones were expected between January and March, while two to four were expected to develop or enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility between April and June. [citation needed], On November 5, a depression off the coast of the Philippines developed into Tropical Depression Quiel. [47] Curved banding developed later that day as the center passed east of Okinawa.

Advisories began to be issued on the system as a conducive environment with very warm sea surface temperatures and low wind shear allowed 22W to strengthen.

Tropical storm Krosa was located approximately 237 nautical miles south of Iwakuni, Japan. The storm killed six people and nine others remained missing. [161] On the same day, the JTWC finally upgraded the system to a tropical storm. Goring reached southern Taiwan early on July 19.

By 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), satellite imagery showed the system continued to erode and unravel as it exited into the Sea of Japan. Krosa was about 397 nautical miles south-southeast of Iwakuni, Japan. The system kept moving inland and weakened to a tropical depression. Three people were killed and 147 others were injured. Podul then intensified a bit further, before making landfall there. On November 8, Halong dropped below typhoon intensity, and finally became extratropical on the following day. Upon crossing the coast, the system had 10-minute sustained winds of 150 km/h (90 mph) and one-minute sustained winds of 155 km/h (100 mph), equivalent to a Category 2 hurricane.

Typhoon Mitag was also responsible for nearly a billion in damage, adding up to $816 million. [95] Kabayan made landfall in Hainan by September 1, and re-emerged over the South China Sea later, and was upgraded by the JTWC to a monsoon depression. [117] Tropical Depression Nimfa was later given a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert but still classified it as a monsoon depression by JTWC. Tropical Depression Hanna strengthened into a tropical storm a day later, and was given the international name Lekima.

[citation needed] The month of June was unusually quiet with the next named storm, Sepat, only peaking as a tropical storm, affected mainland Japan bringing gusty winds and a tornado. [2], On July 5, the TSR released their second forecast for the season, now lowering their numbers and predicting that the season would be a below-average season with 25 named storms, 15 typhoons, and eight intense typhoons. NASA’s Aqua satellite took Tropical Storm Krosa’s cloud top temperatures to get that information and found the strongest storms south of the storm’s center. [157] Kammuri began to show signs of rapid intensification again on December 1, ultimately intensifying to a Category 4 typhoon the next day. This page was last changed on 24 August 2019, at 04:08. [152] On November 8, Halong dropped below typhoon intensity, and finally became extratropical on the following day. [citation needed], High surf from Tropical Depression Marilyn in Puerto Princesa capsized 6 boats at sea. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center said that Krosa is expected to intensify to 50 knots (58 mph/92 kph) as it approaches landfall in southwestern Japan on August 14.

The JMA selected the names from a list of 140 names, that had been developed by the 14 members nations and territories of the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee. That’s about 236 nautical miles west-northwest of Iwo To island, Japan. Thunderstorms wrapped around the low-level center and a band of fragmented thunderstorms stretched far to the south of the center of circulation. Goring dissipated by 18:00 UTC on July 19 (July 20 PST), with PAGASA declaring that Goring had degenerated into a low-pressure area and discontinued advisories on the storm, and the JMA ceased advisories as well. Early on March 17, the tropical depression entered the PAGASA's area of responsibility in the Philippine Sea, and consequently, the agency assigned the name Chedeng to the storm, shortly before it made landfall on Palau. Peipah sustained itself for 12 hours before weakening again into a tropical depression by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. Tropical Depression Nimfa was upgraded by the Japan Meteorological Agency into a tropical storm, and was named Tapah. [citation needed] On August 17, another depression formed and the JMA started monitoring it. It was moving to the northeast and had maximum sustained winds 40 knots (46 mph/74 kph). [3] The PAGASA issued their second forecast for the season on July 15, predicting six to nine tropical cyclones expected to develop or enter their area between July and September and about three to five tropical cyclones by September to December. On November 20, it hit Santa Ana, Cagayan instead of the Ilocos Region, and rapidly dissipated inland.

Cloud top temperatures that cold indicate strong storms that have the capability to create heavy rain. Later, it developed into Tropical Depression 27W, and subsequently issued the name Ramon. Later that day, the tropical depression entered the Philippine area of responsibility, and the PAGASA gave the system the name Falcon. [36] Damage in Davao were at ₱318.99 million (US$6.04 million). [75], In China, Lekima was the 2nd costliest storm in Chinese history, only behind Fitow of 2013, as flooding from Lekima washed away farms and houses in mainland China after its landfall, as it still was a Category 3 by its landfall. [citation needed], Though Lekima, known to them as Hanna in the Philippines, did not directly affect the Philippines, the storm enhanced the southwest monsoon, which caused heavy rain in the nation. 2019 CWB TD15 forecast map (zh-TW).png 956 × 700; 54 KB. [145], As Neoguri strengthened, it brought light rainstorms to the Batanes and Cagayan in the Philippines. On July 21, the JTWC started tracking an area of low pressure associated with remnant of Tropical Depression Goring for the potential formation of a tropical cyclone. [citation needed], Across Cagayan Province, the storm caused ₱618.7 million (US$12.4 million) in damage. [citation needed], In September, five tropical cyclones were formed, one among them typhoon Faxai, made landfall in Japan as a Category 4-equivalent typhoon on September 8 causing landslides and damage that left a total of $8.12 billion with three people were dead of the storm. [61] A man died after being swept away by strong waves in Geochang County.

Phanfone made landfall in the Philippines on December 25 during Christmas Eve as a Category 2 typhoon, the first time since Typhoon Nock-ten in 2016. [24] Eight people in Thailand were killed,[25][26] and the losses in the country were estimated to be 5 billion bahts (US$156 million). [citation needed] Trains service in JR East were cancelled due to the storm. Aqua’s MODIS found strongest thunderstorms in a small area southwest of the center where cloud top temperatures were as cold as minus 80 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 62.2 Celsius).

The bulk of clouds associated with the storm was north of the center. [14] At around 06:00 UTC on January 1, 2019, the system was upgraded to the first tropical storm of the 2019 typhoon season and named Pabuk by the JMA, surpassing Typhoon Alice in 1979 to become the earliest-forming tropical storm of the northwest Pacific Ocean on record.

Heavy rains amounted to 329.5 mm (12.97 in) in Geomun-do.

Caroline Islands, Philippines, Ryukyu Islands, Taiwan, South Korea, Mariana Islands, Japan, Korean Peninsula, Russian Far East. [102] Economic loss in Okinawa Prefecture were at JP¥533 million (US$4.98 million). [66] Goring dissipated by 18:00 UTC on July 19 (July 20 PST), with PAGASA declaring that Goring had degenerated into a low-pressure area and discontinued advisories on the storm, and the JMA ceased advisories as well. 2 tropical depressions were monitored by JMA, to the Taiwan Strait and out in the North Pacific. The JTWC later designated Nimfa as 18W.

[70] Transportation in the affected region was disrupted, with 130 flights cancelled and the Kyushu Railway Company suspending train service. Cloud top temperatures provide information to forecasters about where the strongest storms are located within a tropical cyclone.

On the next day, the tropical depression strengthened into a tropical storm, and the JMA named the storm Mun. [133][134], On October 2, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center began monitoring a tropical disturbance that was situated north of the Marshall Islands. [citation needed], Because of the slow movement over Vietnam, Kajiki brought heavy rains and triggered flooding. On July 19, the JMA reported that Danas has reached its peak intensity with winds of 85 km/h (50 mph). Tropical Storm Krosa continued on its journey northward in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean when NOAA’s NOAA-20 polar orbiting satellite passed overhead and captured a visible image of the strengthening storm in a classic tropical cyclone shape. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center or JTWC issued their final bulletin on Krosa at 0300 UTC on Aug. 16 (11 p.m. EDT on Aug. 15). Phanfone dissipated on December 29 after making landfall in Philippines, leaving a total of 50 deaths and with $61.7 million in damages. [114] By the next day, the JTWC issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert on the system, which will later cancel the next day. [8] Tropical Storm Sepat, however, was only classified as a subtropical storm by the JTWC. [163] During May 10, a third tropical depression developed to the south of Palau. Krosa is also expected to weaken over the next five days. The storm is forecast to become extra-tropical within 24 hours. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center said that Krosa will move northwest, and then later turn north while becoming a typhoon.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center later issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert, and as it gradually developed, it was given the designation, On September 17, a tropical depression formed from the remnants of, Tropical Depression Nimfa was later given a. Tapah still had a disorganized and mostly exposed center on September 19. [42] Chedeng rapidly weakened after making landfall in the Philippines, degenerating into a remnant low on March 19.

[12] Under high vertical wind shear, the low-pressure area remained disorganized until December 31 when it was upgraded to a tropical depression by both the JMA and the JTWC.

Chedeng's remnants continued weakening while moving westward, dissipating over the southern, Sepat's extratropical remnants continued accelerating towards the northeast, moving into the western.

[144] Just 5 hours later, Neoguri reached its peak intensity as it began to pull to the northeast.

On the next day, the JMA designated Tropical Depression Ineng as Tropical Storm Bailu, and the JTWC classified the system as Tropical Depression 12W. [50][51] The next day, the storm fully transitioned into an extratropical system while accelerating eastward 580 km (360 mi) east of Hitachinaka, Japan. Tropical Storm Krosa soon became a typhoon, and rapidly intensified to become a category 3-equivalent typhoon on August 8. [4], This year's season had a slightly-above average season. Krosa’s center is expected to make landfall in the western part of Shikoku Island, Japan.

Afterward, Mun moved inland while weakening, before dissipating late on July 4.
