Abstract : One of the problems of concern to the tropical cyclone forecaster is forecasting the future intensity (maximum wind) of tropical cyclones. The purpose of this report is to familiarize the forecaster with the geographic and seasonal variations of tropical cyclone intensity changes based on 25 years of tropical storm and typhoon data. Intensity changes for 12, 24, and 48 hours have been examined and the results are presented. The data used for this study were extracted from a history file of tropical storms and typhoons of the western North Pacific from 1945-1969.
