The East Pacific Ocean
The East and Central Pacific Hurricane season is coming to a close quietly
Updated: November 30, 2021 7:56 AM EST
The first day of December is upon us, and thus meteorological winter has officially begun, which also signals the official end of the 2021 Eastern Pacific basin hurricane season.
With the current weather pattern across the basin remaining too hostile for tropical development due to a number of typical end-of-season factors, including a large area of strong vertical wind shear covering most of the basin, there currently exists no potential for tropical development in the Eastern Pacific basin.
Barring an unlikely, but not impossible, out-of-season tropical development, this will be the last tropical Eastern Pacific update until the start of the 2022 Eastern Pacific basin hurricane season on May 15.
