800 AM PDT Wed Jun 1 2022

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

One tropical cyclone, Hurricane Agatha, formed in the basin in late 
May. Agatha made landfall near Puerto Angel, Mexico as a Category 2 
hurricane, which is the strongest May landfall on the Pacific coast 
of Mexico since record keeping began in 1949. 

On average, one named storm forms in May every other year, with a 
hurricane forming about once every four years. In terms of 
Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the combined 
strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes, May 2022 
was about 80 percent above the long-term (1991-2020) average.

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