Climate Impact Assessment

February  2015

Overview:

There was no tropical cyclone (TC) that entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) in this month. Because of that, the present report provides climatological TC information for the benefit of the readers. In addition, this report highlights some of the noted differences among the TC best track data provided by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC); the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA); and the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

The non-occurrence of TC during this month is in line with the slim chance of having a TC to affect the country in February. Climatologically, there were just 23 TCs that existed within the PAR during this month from 1951 to 2014. Among such TCs, eight have crossed the Philippine landmass. The last TC that existed within the PAR and crossed the country's landmass during the month of February was observed last year [Tropical Depression (TD) Basyang]. Basyang originated northeast of Palau as a low pressure area (LPA). It strengthened into a TD as it entered the PAR in the evening of January 30, 2014 (around 9:00 PM, Philippine Standard Time). It moved into west northwest direction traversing the northeastern sections of Mindanao and southwestern portions of the Visayas through the northern tip of Palawan. It weakened and dissipated as it approached the western boundary of the PAR in the evening of February 1, 2014.
