This paper reviews the progress of typhoon rainfall and its forecasting researches in China since 1949 from the four perspectives, i. e., the typhoon rainstorm formation mechanisms, typhoon rainstorm special topics, typhoon rainstorm forecasting researches and active fields of typhoon rainfall researches. Firstly, a brief review of the formation mechanism of typhoon rainstorm is conducted including environmental conditions, underlying surface conditions and internal conditions, especially, the special topics review is performed on "75.8" extreme rainstorm in Henan, "Morakot" extreme rainstorm, remote typhoon rainstorm, the diagnostic analyses and climate characteristics of typhoon rainstorm. Meanwhile, the research advances in typhoon rainfall forecast is reviewed briefly, and the active fields such as cloud microphysics, extreme precipitation and forecasting methods have been preliminarily provided for typhoon rainstorm research. Accordingly, a summary and outlook are given in the last section.
