PAGASA List of Typhoon Names for 2013, 2017 and 2021

Philippines is a typhoon belt and can be visited by as much as two typhoons in a row - Typhoon JULIAN and IGME visited our country last August 2012 - a possible FUJIWARA Effect between the two typhoons.

There are two weather seasons in the Philippines - Summer and Rainy Season. We are also a typhoon belt and an average of 20 typhoons visited our country every year and 9 making a landfall.

Since our country is archipelago and surrounded by bodies of water, weather changes very fast in time and space and accurate forecasting is a very challenging job. We are also vulnerable to climate change effects, an increase in ocean temperatures lead to frequent rains and strong typhoons.

PAGASA prepared a list of 25 typhoons and 10 Auxiliary names (in case it exceeded the 25). Typhoon names are repeated every 4 years and those that are deadliest for the year are being removed and replaced by other names (example ONDOY, SENDONG and PABLO are all removed).

Below is PAGASA list of Typhoon names for 2013 and their respective tracks. If you are looking for Typhoon names for 2014, here are the list.
