From July to October typhoons are most likely to hit on average about four direct hits per year. In the Northern part of Taiwan, cloudiness is constant and wide during the year; in the south the rainy days are always in the summer time and 90% of the annual rainfall takes place during this period. The yearly rainfall is generally more than 2500 millimeter and close to 5000 millimeter in some Eastern regions.
