Due to my young age, I am not really all that aware of past weather events, patterns and such.

Over the past week (and the week before that), I've noticed about 7+ storms (depressions, storms under investigations, etc) that have formed in the pacific.

One that I've been monitoring just turned into a super typhoon with winds up to 250 kph (155 MPH).
The storms over the past week also played follow the leader and formed quite an alignment that I admired.

My question is simply: Is it normal for storms to form at such normal in such a small period of time? Could it be cause this is an active hurricane/typhoon season?

Pacific weather rarely effects me, unless a typhoon hits the Baja, which gives us a ton of rain here. Atlantic weather....i am familiar with.

This is the season for northern hemisphere hurricanes/typhoons. They will form at regular intervals along the equator. In the Atlantic, they roll off the Horn of Africa and gain strength as they cross the Atlantic. The warm ocean waters fuel them.

Just keep watching it over the upcoming years.
It is fairly interesting to observe and study up on. Although I am the worlds worst weatherman.
