As of November 23, 2020 the 2020 Typhoon Season had 29 tropical depressions, 22 tropical storms, 10 typhoons, and 2 super typhoons. It may look like that’s a lot of tropical cyclones but the season is currently below average in terms of named storms and activity. The season is currently quiet as the last system died on November 15,2020 but this doesn’t mean that the season is over, systems can still form this late November or December.Let’s take an example like Super Typhoon Nock-Ten (Nina) which was a late Category 5 Typhoon that formed on December 20,2016, other examples of a late season typhoons were Typhoon Kammuri (Tisoy) in November of 2019 and Typhoon Phanfone (Ursula) in December of 2019. The Pacific Ocean is always full of surprises!
