These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean.The scope of this article is limited to the Pacific Ocean, north of the equator and west of the International Date Line.Three fatalities have been confirmed in China, two due to a road being covered in a mud flow, and another due to winds blowing a sheet of aluminum into a person, throwing them off the roof of a stadium.Around the same time the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) also designated the area of low pressure as a Tropical depression with the JTWC assigning the number 03W to the depression.Later that day, Nakri strengthened at a more rapid pace and the rapid intensification continued into May 29, when Nakri strengthened to a Category 4-equivalent typhoon.PAGASA then issued its first advisory on the storm on early on May 30 and named it "Enteng". On June 18, an area of low pressure that the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) had been monitoring for a few days was upgraded to Tropical Depression Frank.The first tropical depression of the season, formed in mid January to the west of the Philippines.As it moved west, the depression did not develop any further and dissipated on January 18.

In November and December, only four tropical cyclones were named by the JMA and all four formed within the Philippine sea and the South China Sea.

Early on May 16, both PAGASA and the JTWC issued their final advisories on the storm as it approached the edge of PAGASA's Area of responsibility, with the JTWC reporting that Matmo was now extratropical.

Twelve hours later, the JTWC upgraded 06W to a typhoon.

However early on January 14 the JTWC reported that the depression had continued to intensify and upgraded the depression to a Tropical storm and then six hours later reported 1-minute peak windspeeds of 65 km/h (40 mph).

The low continued to get better organized and early on April 14, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center began issuing advisories on Tropical Depression 02W, which was located about north of Zamboanga City, Philippines.
