Oceans and seas have great influence on the weather of continental masses. A large portion of the solar energy reaching the sea-surface is expended in the process of evaporation. These water evaporated from the sea/ocean is carried up into the atmosphere and condenses, forming clouds from which all forms of precipitation result. Sometimes, intense cyclonic circulations occur which is what we call the tropical cyclones.

PSWS UpdatedWhen any Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal Number is hoisted or put in effect for the first time, the corresponding meteorological conditions are not yet prevailing over the locality. This is because the purpose of the signal is to warn the impending occurrence of the given meteorological conditions. It must be noted also that the approximate lead time to expect the range of the wind speeds given for each signal number is valid only when the signal number is put in effect for the first time. Thus, the associated meteorological conditions are still expected in at least 36 hours when TCWS #1 is put in effect initially; in at least 24 hours with TCWS #2; in at least 18 hours with TCWS #3, in at least 12 hours with TCWS #4; and in at least 12 hours with TCWS #5. The lead time shortens correspondingly in the subsequent issues of the warning bulletin when the signal number remains in effect as the tropical cyclone comes closer.

REVISED LIST OF NAMES FOR TROPICAL CYCLONES WITHIN THE PHILIPPINE AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY (Effective February 2019)

The first tropical cyclone of the year starts with the name beginning in letter A as in AMANG under column 1 for 2019 and so on down the list as one disturbance succeeds another.  The 5th year (2023) will bring us back to column 1 of AMANG.  In the event that the  number of tropical cyclones within the year exceeds 25, an auxiliary list is used, the first ten of which are listed under each column.

The Typhoon Committee, recently released a list of 140 tropical cyclone names adopted by its Members for use in the Western North Pacific Ocean and the South China Sea. The new naming system, which will lead to the standardization of the usage of names for tropical cyclones in the region, was approved during the 31st session of the Committee, held in the Philippines on 1-7 December 1998. This scheme is also expected to enhance alertness of the people to impending tropical cyclone hazard. The new method of assigning Asian names to tropical cyclones in the region will be implemented at the start of the new millenium on 1 January 2000.
