The 2014 Imaginary Lands of Nicholas Typhoon Season was a below average event of an annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation for the year of 2014. The season produced 6 tropical depressions, of which 2 became tropical storms, and 3 of which became typhoons. No super typhoons were a part of this season.

The season includes all tropical cyclones that make landfall and/or affects regions of the Imaginary Lands of Nicholas. The season has no definite start date, and may run year-round. However, most tropical cyclones are formed in May to November, with July to September being the most active in the season.

On average, based on the past ten seasons from 2003 to 2013, 9.1 cyclones form each year, with 6.6 of them transforming to a tropical storm, 3.2 becoming typhoons, and 1.0 becoming a super typhoon.

The National Meteorology Bureau of the Imaginary Lands of Nicholas (NMBILN) will issue a tropical cyclone forecast in early 2014, alongside with the University of Watersauga.

In addition to NMBILN issuing forecasts and maintaining storm statuses for each storm, the NMBILN has also partnered with the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) to provide tropical strength data for each cyclone. The peak strength rated by HKO is listed throughout the article.

Severe Typhoon JavidEdit

Typhoon (HKO)
Category 3 typhoon (SSHS)

Severe Typhoon Javid (Traditional Chinese: 強烈颱風夏菲特) was the first tropical cyclone to form in 2014. Combined with a wealth of moisture, warm ocean waters, and weak wind shear, the tropical wave was first identified on 14 June. It then explosively grew into a tropical depression, numbered "001" on the 15th, and subsequently jumping from a tropical depression to a severe tropical storm in a day on the 16th. The storm has since rapidly intensified into a severe typhoon within 48 hours.


Severe Tropical Storm TomanEdit

Severe tropical storm (HKO)
Counterclockwise vortex
Duration 30 June 2014 – 6 July 2014
Intensity 95 km/h (60 mph) (10-min),  989 mbar (hPa)
Highest tropical cyclone warning signal issued: No. 03 Strong Wind Signal.png Signal No. 3 Strong Winds

Severe Tropical Storm Toman (Traditional Chinese: 強烈熱帶風暴多曼) was a severe tropical storm that affected Nicholas City and its immediate area, passing within the 300 km radius of the capital city. The system had formed from a tropical wave that had developed in late June, strengthening into a severe tropical storm, and ultimately making landfall about 400 km west of Nicholas City.

A substantial amount of rain had fallen in the capital city area associated with the severe tropical storm. In particular, the storm's remnants have dumped over 120 mm of rain in 5 days, causing localized flooding in the capital area. Rainfall warnings and flooding advisories have been issued.
