OVERVIEW OF THE EASTERN PACIFIC BASIN:

Eastern North Pacific season is from June through October, although a storm can form in any month. An average of 15 tropical cyclones (tropical storms and hurricanes) form each year with about 6 reaching hurricane strength. The most intense storms are often early-and late-season ones; these form close to the coast and far south. Midseason storms form anywhere from the Mexican-Central American coast to the Hawaiian Islands. August and September are the months of highest incidence. These storms differ from there North Atlantic counterparts in that they are usually smaller in size. However they can just be as intense. The Eastern North Pacific is also sub-divided into 2 areas: (1) Eastern Pacific: East of 140W. The NHC in Miami,FL is responsible for this region. (2) Central Pacific: between 180 and 140W. The CPHC in Honolulu,HI is responsible for this region.
