    The current LPA, potential 'Tonyo', is the Philippines' 20th tropical cyclone for 2020 and second for November.

    On average, there are 20 tropical cyclones that could form or enter the PAR each year. Only half of those are projected to make landfall.

    However, the weather bureau advised of more cyclones that could enter PAR until December.

    PAGASA declared the onset of rainy season on June 12.
