Typhoon BOLAVEN was formed in South China Sea. It is forecast to move to southern Vietnam. If you search the list of typhoons that were formed through January 3rd, this is the fifth typhoon in the observation history that was formed in the first three days of the year. In recent years, Typhoon 201301 was also formed on January 3rd, but this typhoon is the third earlist typhoon according to the formation time of rapid analysis. However, it is better to regard this as the continuation of the past year in terms of typhoon season.
