One tropical cyclone occurred over western North Pacific in April 2018.

Jelawat formed as a tropical depression over the western North Pacific southeast of Yap on 25 March. Details of its evolution can be found in “Overview of Tropical Cyclones in March 2018”. Despite attaining super typhoon intensity with an estimated maximum sustained wind of 195 km/h on 30 March, Jelawat subsequently weakened rapidly while tracking eastwards. It finally dissipated over the western North Pacific southeast of Iwo Jima on 1 April.
