Monthly Eastern North Pacific Tropical Weather Summary

MONTHLY TROPICAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 AM PDT TUE SEP 1 2015

For the eastern North Pacific, east of 140 degrees west longitude:

Three named storms and two tropical depressions formed in the
eastern North Pacific basin in August.  All three named storms
became hurricanes, and one, Jimena, became a major hurricane in
the eastern Pacific basin.  Both Hilda and Ignacio became major
hurricanes in the central Pacific basin.  Based on a 30-year
(1981-2010) climatology, three or four named storms typically form
in the basin in August, with two becoming hurricanes and one
reaching major hurricane strength.

In terms of Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the
combined strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes,
activity in the basin so far in 2015 has been above normal.  The ACE
through the end of August is about one third higher than the
1981-2010 median value to date.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at
the website of the National Hurricane Center at
www.nhc.noaa.gov/data/tcr/index.php?season=2015&basin=epac
