With Dora's entry into the WestPac as a typhoon, we now have an unofficial streak of seven consecutive typhoons. This could've been official had Talim been properly classified by the JMA.
Sanvu would be the only system to not have been upgraded by the JTWC.
Even if we're three named storms behind the average to date (7 vs average of around 10 per CSU), we're substantially above normal in terms of ACE, typhoon, and intense/major typhoon days. In other words, our systems have not been many but they have been long-lived and intense. A similar picture in the EPac atm, which has 5 (vs the average of 8) named storms to date but evidently high ACE.
Quite an impressive quality-over-quantity season in both sides of the Pacific. We have a whopping 19.1 ACE per storm and 15.08 in the EPac.
