If in the last days of the current month in the center of the Philippines formed a tropical storm, this July will be the first in Japan for the entire history of observations, when there was not a single Typhoon. It is reported by Japanese news Agency Jiji.

the Japan meteorological Agency conducts continuous monitoring of typhoons since 1951. On average, according to him, in July in the area of Japan are 3.6 Typhoon.

Local meteorologists say that this year, even fewer typhoons than in the previous year, despite the heating of the sea surface in the tropical Pacific ocean (tropical storms begin to form when water temperature in the ocean rises above 26 degrees Celsius). This is due to the fact that in the Western tropical Pacific is a strong area of high pressure.
