Plain Language Summary: The trend of strong typhoons in the western North Pacific over the recent 30 years was analyzed using the Dvorak reanalysis data from 1987 to 2016 produced by Japan Meteorological Agency. The strong typhoons were defined in this study as tropical cyclones (TCs) equivalent to category 4 and 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale. A trend analysis for strong typhoons showed no statistically significant increasing trend with large inter-annual and multi-year scale variations.
