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

Two named storms formed in the eastern Pacific basin in the month of 
October and one system (Julia) moved into the basin from the 
Atlantic.  This level of activity is near the long-term (1991-2020) 
average for the month.  One of those storms, Roslyn, became a major 
hurricane, and it made landfall as a Category 3 hurricane in 
west-central Mexico.  Orlene, which formed in September, also became 
a major hurricane early in the month, and it made landfall in as a 
Category 1 hurricane in west-central Mexico.  Including Orlene, the 
overall level of activity in October was a little above the 
long-term average.

The number of named storms that have formed in the basin so far
in 2022 (17) is above the long-term (1991-2020) average of 
14 through October (Bonnie and Julia are not included since they 
formed in the Atlantic basin).  The number of hurricanes (10) is 
also above average (8).  

In terms of Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the 
combined strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes, 
2022 is running about 10 percent above the long-term (1991-2020) 
median to date.
