For the central North Pacific, between 140W and 180W:

There were no tropical cyclones in the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, CPHC, area of responsibility during the month of November.

There were five tropical cyclones in the central North Pacific during the 2019 hurricane season. The only hurricane of the season, Erick, briefly became a major hurricane on 30 July after it crossed into the basin from the northeast Pacific. However, Erick steadily weakened after that as it passed far south of the main Hawaiian Islands. The other four systems in the central North Pacific reached tropical storm intensity. Two of these systems, Akoni and Ema, were given names from the Central Pacific list of Hawaiian names. None of the five tropical cyclones directly impacted the main Hawaiian Islands. However, Ema dissipated over the southern portion of the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument shortly before crossing between French Frigate Shoals and Maro Reef.

Reports on individual tropical cyclones, when completed, are available at the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) website at www.hurricanes.gov/data/tcr/index.php?season=2019&basin=cpac
