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

One tropical storm (Raymond) and one tropical depression (Twenty One-E) formed in the basin in November. Although the long-term average is one tropical storm forms in the basin every second or third year, this is the second straight November with at least one named storm forming. In fact, named storms have formed in November in five of the past six years.

Overall, the 2019 eastern Pacific hurricane season featured near average activity. There were seventeen named storms, of which seven became hurricanes and four became major hurricanes - category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. This compares to the long-term averages of fifteen named storms, eight hurricanes, and four major hurricanes. There were also two tropical depressions that did not reach tropical storm strength. In terms of Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes, activity in the basin in 2019 was a little below the long-term mean.
