(SPOT.ph) The peak of rainy season has made its annual return, but this year, it's looking to last longer and be wetter than most. PAGASA has released their mid-year weather report that details how many tropical cyclones we can expect in the remaining months of 2022. Spoiler alert: It's a lot.

Their report suggests we can still expect 11 tropical cyclones to enter the Philippine area of responsibility before the year ends. At least this means your phone will be blowing up with texts... from the NDRRMC though, not your crush. Although, should these tropical cyclones hit Metro Manila, that could be your opportunity to send over the not-quite-subtle but still caring "Heyyy, the rain is crazy. Are you okay?" message. More Ys than necessary to add a bit of fun, yes.

The graph shows we can expect roughly two to three tropical cyclones to enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) each month for the last six months of the year, with October possibly going up to four and December hopefully being limited to only one.

More tropical cyclones are entering the Philippines this year "than anywhere else in the world," PAGASA stated in their weather forecast for the second half of the year. If disaster response and relief are to be handled as they normally are, there's potential that all these typhoons will help us retain our similar number one ranking as the most stressed-out workers in Southeast Asia.

As for how the track record is faring this year, the most recently recorded typhoon to enter the PAR was Tropical Storm Domeng in early July, which brought the typhoon tally up to four for the year.
