This paper presents the way of identifying the start date of an active storm season in the western North Pacific (WNP) and East Sea (ES). The start (end) date for an active TC season in a year is identified at 5th (95th) percentile of data. Normal and empirical distributions are used to estimate climatological thresholds for the early and late start of the active TC season. Climatological early (late) start is under (over) the date at 33% (67%) of cumulative probability function. Climatological
