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.
