The 2008 Pacific typhoon season has no official bounds; it runs year-round in 2008, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and November. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean.

Introduction

Chart

The above chart documents the tropical cyclone activity in the Western North Pacific basin. Storms not named by the JMA are indicated in inverted commas. The maximum strength of each cyclone in the chart is denoted by different colours as stipulated in the legend below the chart. This tropical cyclone scale makes use of the JMA's official 10-minute average sustained wind speeds for storms below typhoon intensity (≤117 km/h, ≤73 mph). When a storm reaches typhoon intensity on the JMA scale, the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale is used instead, which makes use of the JTWC's unofficial 1-minute average sustained wind speeds. Note that tropical depressions as tracked by the JMA are not reflected; the 'tropical depression' classification above is used for all storms designated by the JTWC or PAGASA, but not officially named by the JMA, and thus did not officially attain tropical storm intensity (63 km/h, 39 mph).

Timeline

The following timeline documents the major events in the season with regards to tropical cyclone formation, strengthening, weakening, landfall, extratropicality and dissipation. Please note that the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) is considered to be official for this tropical cyclone basin; Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is only responsible for Philippine warnings while the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) releases advisories for Micronesia (including the Mariana Islands) and U.S. military interests in Japan and South Korea.

All landfalls are bolded and referred to in JMA terms. The JTWC storms are referred to numerically, to avoid confusion, as the JTWC sometimes recognises a storm at a different intensity compared to the JMA. For the purposes of the timeline, all events stemming from JTWC advisories will be documented by time of issuance, rather than by the operational time of observed information (3 hours before). It should be noted that the timeline does not deal with the end of PAGASA-monitored storms; if the JTWC or the JMA did not monitor such a storm it should be assumed that the storm did not cause major damage or make landfall, and simply dissipated or left the area of jurisdiction of PAGASA.
