Monthly Tropical Weather Summary
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM PDT Thu Oct 1 2020

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

Tropical cyclone activity in the eastern North Pacific basin during 
the month of September was slightly below average in terms of the 
number of hurricanes that occurred.  During the month, four 
tropical storms formed, but only one reached hurricane strength.  
Based on a 30-year (1981-2010) climatology, three-to-four named 
storms typically form in the basin in September, with two of those 
becoming hurricanes and one reaching major hurricane intensity. 

In terms of Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the 
strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes, activity 
in the basin so far in 2020 has been rather quiet, about 60 percent 
below the long-term average.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at
