MONTHLY TROPICAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 AM PDT MON JUN 01 2015

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

Two tropical cyclones formed in the basin in May, Hurricane Andres,
which became a major hurricane, and Tropical Depression Two-E,
which has since become Tropical Storm Blanca.  On average, a named
storm forms in the basin in May about once every other year, with a
hurricane forming about once every four years.  Major hurricanes are
relatively rare in the basin in May.  Andres is only the fifth major
hurricane to form in May in the eastern North Pacific since reliable
records began in 1971.

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