Monthly Tropical Weather Summary
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM PST Sun Dec 1 2019

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.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at
the National Hurricane Center website at:
