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

No tropical cyclones formed in the eastern Pacific basin in the 
month of November.  Based on a 30-year climatology (1991-2020), one 
named storm typically forms in November every second or third 
year.  This is the first November since 2017 in which a named 
storm did not form during the final month of the hurricane season. 

Overall, the 2022 eastern Pacific hurricane season featured an 
above average number of named storms and hurricanes, and an average 
number of major hurricanes.  Seventeen named storms formed in the 
basin in 2022 (Bonnie and Julia are not included since they formed 
in the Atlantic basin).  Ten hurricanes occurred in the basin with 
four of those becoming major hurricanes (category 3 or greater on 
Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale).  This compares to the 
long-term (1991-2020) averages of fifteen named storms, eight 
hurricanes, and four major hurricanes. In terms of Accumulated 
Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the strength and duration of 
tropical storms and hurricanes, the activity in the Eastern Pacific 
was near the long-term (1991-2020) average. 

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at
