Typhoon GENEVIEVE is the first tropical cyclone to cross the eastern, central and western Pacific basins since 2003.

GENEVIEVE started off as a blob of convections off the American coast in middle July. It drifted to the west without gathering much strength, before it was finally upgraded into a tropical storm on July 25. However, vertical wind shear was strong and the storm weakened back into a tropical depression the next day. GENEVIEVE entered central Pacific (west of 140°W) on July 27, still moving westward. In the next few days it degenerated further, but did not dissipate completely.

As environmental conditions improved on August 2, GENEVIEVE picked up strength again. It struggled at the beginning but eventually managed to develop convections on August 5. An eye developed and GENEVIEVE was upgraded into a hurricane on August 6. The storm turned WNW as the western edge of the subtropical ridge started to weaken. GENEVIEVE entered western Pacific shortly before 2 pm August 7, while it was undergoing rapid intensification. The central dense overcast became round and intense with cloud top temperatures dipping to below -70 degrees.

GENEVIEVE reached category 5 intensity at 8 pm August 7. As the ridge weakened further, GENEVIEVE decelerated and turned NNE on August 8. Lower sea temperatures led to GENEVIEVE's weakening from that point. It gradually weakened but still remained as a typhoon in the next two days. Although the subtropical ridge had weakened, it was still intact at higher latitudes. Under its influence GENEVIEVE accelerated and turned equatorward.

As the ridge dominated that area, divergence was severely restricted. Together with cool sea temperatures beyond 30°N, GENEVIEVE weakened into a tropical storm on August 11. Initially there were forecasts calling for an abrupt eastward turn due to another mid-latitude trough approaching the area, but GENEVIEVE weakened into an area of low pressure on August 12 before the turn could materialize.

GENEVIEVE 是自 2003 年來首個跨越東、中和西太平洋的熱帶氣旋。

一堆雲團於 7 月中旬在美洲對開海域形成,它一直西移但無甚發展,直至 25 日終被升格為熱帶風暴 GENEVIEVE,但由於該區垂直風切變較高,GENEVIEVE 於翌日減弱為熱帶低氣壓。GENEVIEVE 於 27 日進入中太平洋 (西經 140 度以西),繼續向西推進。它於隨後數天繼續減弱,但未完全消散。

隨著大氣環境於 8 月 2 日改善,GENEVIEVE 再度增強。初時 GENEVIEVE 發展略有阻滯,但最終其對流於 5 日增加,而其風眼於 6 日出現,風暴被升格為颶風。由於副熱帶高壓脊西緣開始減弱,GENEVIEVE 開始向西北偏西移動。GENEVIEVE 於 7 日下午 2 時前進入西太平洋,並迅速增強,其中心密集雲區渾圓、對流活動猛烈,雲頂溫度下降至 -70 度。

GENEVIEVE 於 7 日下午 8 時增強為五級超級颱風。副高於 8 日進一步減弱,GENEVIEVE 因而減速並向東北偏北推進。該區海溫較冷,GENEVIEVE 開始減弱,但仍於其後兩日維持颱風強度。雖然副高有所減弱,其於高緯度的勢力仍在,GENEVIEVE 於到達該區時開始加速並轉回偏西路徑。

由於副高盤據該區,風暴的輻散被嚴重限制,加上受北緯 30 度以北的偏低海溫影響,GENEVIEVE 於 11 日減弱為熱帶風暴。初時部分預測預計另一道西風槽會再度削弱副高並令 GENEVIEVE 突轉東移,但在此發生之前, GENEVIEVE 於 12 日已減弱成低壓區。
