Monthly Tropical Weather Summary
NWS Central Pacific Hurricane Center Honolulu HI
1220 PM HST Fri Nov 2 2018

For the central North Pacific, between 140W and 180W:

There was one tropical cyclone in the central North Pacific basin
during the month of October. In late September, Walaka formed far
south of the main Hawaiian Islands, becoming the first tropical
cyclone to develop in the central Pacific since 2016. Walaka rapidly
intensified to a Category 5 hurricane as October began, prompting
Hurricane Warnings for portions of the Papahanaumokuakea Marine
National Monument. Walaka transitioned to an extratropical low far
northwest of Hawaii on 6 October.

Reports on individual tropical cyclones, when completed, are
available at the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) website at
www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/summaries/

Note, the summary table below only includes tropical cyclones in
the CPHC area of responsibility, and the dates are based on
Universal Coordinated Time, UTC.
