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

Four named storms formed in the month of July, with two of them becoming a hurricane. One of the hurricanes (Erick) reached major hurricane status, but this occurred after the system moved into the Central Pacific basin. One tropical depression also formed in the month. Based on a 30-year (1981-2010) climatology, three to four named storms typically form during July, with two of those storms becoming a hurricane 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 2019 is a little below normal.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at the National Hurricane Center website at: www.hurricanes.gov/data/tcr/index.php?season=2019&basin=epac
