norm, with three to five more tropical storms expected to hit Taiwan before the end of the year, reported CNA.

The storms are likely to be stronger than previous years, as a possible El Niño weather pattern is developing.

Higher than average rain could also be expected during July, followed by lower than average rain for August and September, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).

The prediction was laid out by the CWB during a press conference about Taiwan’s upcoming typhoon season, which traditionally runs from July to September.
