Key Idea On a global scale, the projections indicate there is likely to be a decrease in the number of typhoons by the end of the 21st century. There is also likely to be an increase in the average maximum wind speed of typhoons and an increase in rainfall intensity within 100 kilometers of the typhoon center.

The FSM is in a region where projections for the 21st century tend to show a decrease in both typhoon frequency and intensity.
