The 1994 Pacific hurricane season officially started on May 15, 1994 in the eastern Pacific, and on June 1, 1994 in the central Pacific, and lasted until November 30, 1994. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northeastern Pacific Ocean.

Of note in this season is an unusual spree of very intense storms. Hurricanes Emilia, Gilma, John, and Olivia all reached a pressure below 930 millibars. Elsewhere, Hurricane Rosa caused several casualties in Mexico.

This season, twenty-two tropical cyclones formed in the north Pacific Ocean east of the dateline. All but two of them became tropical storms or hurricanes. In the eastern Pacific (140°W to North America), nineteen tropical depressions formed, of which seventeen became tropical storms, nine became hurricanes, and five became major hurricanes of Category 3 intensity or higher on the Saffir Simpson Scale. These numbers are the long-term averages of fifteen tropical storms, nine hurricanes, and four major hurricanes.cite web|url= http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/Epac_hurr/background_information.html|title=Background Information: East Pacific Hurricane Season|date=2008-05-22|publisher=Climate Prediction Center|accessdate=2008-09-23]

In the Central Pacific Hurricane Center's area of responsibility (140°W to the dateline), three depressions, two tropical storms, and one hurricane formed. Over all, there were eleven tropical cyclones, eight tropical storms, five hurricanes, and three major hurricanes that formed or entered the central Pacific.cite web|url= http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/summaries/|title=Previous Tropical Systems in the Central Pacific|publisher=Central Pacific Hurricane Center |accessdate=2008-09-23] These numbers are well above the long-term average of four tropical cyclones, two hurricanes, one tropical storm, and two depressions. cite web|url= http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/summaries/2006.php|title=2006 Tropical Cyclones Central North Pacific|month=July|year=2007|author=Andy Nash, Tim Craig, Sam Houston, Roy Matsuda, Jeff Powell, Ray Tanabe, & Jim Weyman|accessdate=2008-09-23|publisher=Central Pacific Hurricane Center] The extremely high activity was contributed to by an El Niño ongoing at the time.cite web|url= http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/summaries/1997.php|title=The 1997 Central Pacific Tropical Cyclone Season|author=Benjamin Hablutzel, Hans Rosendal, James Weyman, & Jonathan Hoag|publisher=Central Pacific Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-23]

The only named storm to make landfall this year was Hurricane Rosa, which killed several people in Mexico.cite web|url= http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/rosa/prelim02.gif|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Rosa|pages=2|date=1994-11-22|format=GIF|author=Lixion Avila|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-23] Other notable storms include Hurricane Olivia, which is one of the most intense Pacific hurricanes on record, the three Category 5 hurricanes Emilia, Gilma, and John, and Hurricane Li, which existed in all three basins (East, Central, and West) of the Pacific Ocean.cite web|url=http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/summaries/1994.php|title=The 1994 Central Pacific Tropical Cyclone Season|accessdate=2008-09-23|publisher=Central Pacific Hurricane Center]

This season is the swan song of the eastern north Pacific's most recent active period. That period, which began in 1982,cite web|url=http://www.australiansevereweather.com/cyclones/2004/summ0404.htm|title=Monthly Global Tropical Cyclone Summary April 2004|author=Gary Padgett|accessdate=2008-09-23] and includes the five most active Pacific hurricane seasons, ended with this season. Starting in 1995, multi-decadal factors switched to a phase that suppresses Pacific hurricane activity.cite web|url=http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/Epac_hurr/Epac_hurricane.html|title=NOAA: 2008 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season Outlook|date=2008-05-22|publisher=Climate Prediction Center|accessdate=2008-09-23] Since then, Pacific hurricane activity has been largely inactive.cite web|url=http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/Epac_hurr/figure2.gif|title=Historical East Pacific Seasonal Activity|format=GIF|publisher=Climate Prediction Center|accessdate=2008-09-23]


The 1994 Pacific hurricane season set several records. First, three hurricanes reached Category 5 intensity on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. The only other time that happened was in 2002. (The National Hurricane Center does not consider Emilia to have reached Category 5 intensity.) Two systems, Hurricanes Li and John, crossed through all three Pacific Ocean basins; this season is the only one to have more than one tropical cyclone do that. Eleven tropical cyclones entered or formed in the central Pacific, a record shared with the 1992 season. Finally, although not really a record, of the four most intense hurricanes in the central Pacific, three of them occurred this season.


Tropical Storm Aletta

Infobox Hurricane Small

Track=Aletta 1994 track.pngFormed=June 18
Dissipated=June 23
1-min winds=45
Tropical Depression One-E formed from an area of disturbed weather on June 18. It strengthened to Tropical Storm Aletta the next day. It continued intensifying and reached its peak intensity on June 20. Shear began to affect the storm and weaken it. The weakening trend continued, weakening Aletta to a depresson on June 21. The system dissipated June 23. Aletta's remnant low, however, could be tracked on satellite images for days following the storm. The low finally dissipated north of Hawaii.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/aletta/prelim01.gif|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Aletta|author=Richard Pasch|date=1994-10-25|accessdate=2008-09-23|pages=1|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center] Aletta never affected land, and no damage or casualties were reported.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/aletta/prelim02.gif|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Aletta|author=Richard Pasch|date=1994-10-25|accessdate=2008-09-23|pages=2|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center]

Tropical Depression One-E strengthened into Tropical Storm Aletta on June 19. That date is the fourth latest date for a season's first tropical storm since 1966. It was the latest date since the 1968 season.

Tropical Storm Bud

Infobox Hurricane Small

Track=Bud 1994 track.pngFormed=June 27
Dissipated=June 29
1-min winds=40
Tropical Depression Two-E formed on June 27 about convert|575|mi|km south-southwest of the tip of the Baja California Peninsula. The depression headed west-northwest, gradually turned to the northwest, and strengthened into Tropical Storm Bud on June 27. Early the next day, Bud peaked in intensity. Shear caused by a nearby upper level low slowly weakened Bud. Later on June 28, a second center of circulation developed. The two centers started a Fujiwhara interaction. The second center then became dominant and the first one vanished. This confused structure is similar to what happened to 1993's Tropical Storm Arlene. This confused structure also weakened Bud to a tropical depression on the afternoon of the same day the second center formed. Bud then headed westward over cool waters and dissipated on June 29.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/bud/prelim01.gif|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Bud|author=Edward Rappaport|date=1994-07-22|format=GIF|pages=1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-24] Tropical Storm Bud spent its entire life over the open ocean far from land areas.

Hurricane Carlotta

Infobox Hurricane Small

Track=Carlotta 1994 track.pngFormed=June 28
Dissipated=July 5
1-min winds=90
The tropical depression that would be Carlotta formed on July 28. It quickly became Tropical Storm Carlotta, and a large eye became visible. Because of this, the NHC upgraded the storm to a hurricane. Carlotta peaked in intensity on July 1, as a convert|105|mi/h|km/h|abbr=on hurricane. It gradually weakened as it moved into cooler waters, dissipating on July 5. Carlotta did not threaten land.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/carlotta/prelim01.gif|date=1994-07-21|author=Lixion Avila|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Carlotta|pages=1|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-24]

Carlotta buffeted Socorro Island with sustained winds of convert|39|mph|km/h on June 30.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/carlotta/prelim02.gif|date=1994-07-21|author=Lixion Avila|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Carlotta|pages=2|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-24] Other than there, Carlotta caused no damage or deaths.

Tropical Storm Daniel

Infobox Hurricane Small

Track=Daniel 1994 track.pngFormed=July 8
Dissipated=July 14
1-min winds=55
On July 8, a disturbance located about convert|1000|mi|km southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula developed a circulation and became Tropical Depression Four-E. Convection increased, and the depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Daniel. Upper-level outflow improved, and Daniel peaked in intensity on July 9. Daniel slowly declined as it continued westward. It entered the central Pacific on July 11. Wind shear weakened Daniel as it approached the Big Island, and by July 15 had degenerated into an open wave.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/daniel/prelim01.gif|date=1994-10-14|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Daniel|author=Max Mayfield|format=GIF|pages=1|publisher=National Hurricane Center]

When Daniel was approaching Hawaii, moderate surf of convert|4|to|6|ft|m impacted the south and southeast shores of the Big Island on July 13 and 14. Daniel's remnants also passed about convert|100|mi|km south of South Point, Hawaii on July 15. That day, they caused rainfall on windward slopes of the Big Island locally reaching convert|5|in|mm. No reports of damage or casualties were received.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/daniel/prelim02.gif|date=1994-10-14|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Daniel|author=Max Mayfield|format=GIF|pages=2|publisher=National Hurricane Center]

Hurricane Emilia

Infobox Hurricane Small

Track=Emilia 1994 track.pngFormed=July 16
Dissipated=July 25
1-min winds=140
On July 16, a area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave organized into Tropical Depression Five-E. It strengthened into Tropical Storm Emilia later that day. It moved west-northwest and strengthened into a hurricane.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/emilia/prelim01.gif|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Emilia|date=1994-08-13|author=Miles Lawrence|accessdate=2008-09-24|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center|pages=1] It entered the central Pacific on July 17. It continued intensifying, reaching Category 5 intensity on July 19, the first Category 5 Pacific hurricane since Ava. (The National Hurricane Center does not consider Emilia to have reached Category 5 intensity, but the Central Pacific Hurricane Center does.) Emilia started weakening quickly on July 21. It weakened to a tropical storm on July 23 and dissipated two days later.

Emilia passed south of the Hawai’ian Islands, producing swells of convert|6|to|10|ft|m in height near the Puna and Ka‘ū coasts. Winds caused minor damage, and rain was moderate. No one was killed.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/emilia/prelim02.gif|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Emilia|date=1994-08-13|author=Miles Lawrence|accessdate=2008-09-24|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center|pages=2]

Tropical Storm Fabio

Infobox Hurricane Small

Track=Fabio 1994 track.pngFormed=July 19
Dissipated=July 24
1-min winds=40
A tropical depression formed on July 19. Later that day, it strengthened into Tropical Storm Fabio. Fabio headed generally west or northwestward.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/fabio/prelim01.gif|pages=1|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Fabio|author=Max Mayfield|date=1994-10-15|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-24] It entered the central Pacific as a tropical depression, and dissipated on July 24.

Fabio's remnants brought locally heavy rainfall to Hawaii, reaching convert|3|to|4|in|mm. No one was killed and there was no damage.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/fabio/prelim02.gif|pages=2|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Fabio|author=Max Mayfield|date=1994-10-15|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-24]

Hurricane Gilma

Infobox Hurricane Small

Track=Gilma 1994 track.pngFormed=July 21
Dissipated=July 31
1-min winds=140
Part of a tropical wave organized into a tropical depression on July 21. It headed westward and out to sea, strengthening into a tropical storm the next day. Gilma rapidly strengthened and became a hurricane exactly one day after it was named. It continued to intensify as it entered the central Pacific. Shortly after entering the central Pacific, Gilma reached Category 5 intensity on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, the second of the season.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/gilma/prelim01.gif|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Gilma|publisher=National Hurricane Center|author=Richard J. Pasch|date=1995-01-20|format=GIF|pages=1|accessdate=2008-09-24] It then suddenly weakened for unexplained reasons, and weakened into a tropical storm on July 27. It became a depression three days dat and dissipated on July 31. Hurricane Gilma had minor impact on Johnston Atoll. That atoll received light rain, wind gusts to near gale force,cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/gilma/prelim02.gif|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Gilma|publisher=National Hurricane Center|author=Richard J. Pasch|date=1995-01-20|format=GIF|pages=2|accessdate=2008-08-18] and surf. No casualties or damage were reported.

Hurricane Gilma was the second most-intense Pacific at the time. As of 2008, it remains the sixth-most intense. Gilma is also the strongest July storm in the eastern or central Pacific.

Hurricane Li

The depression's remains continued their westward path well south of the Hawaiian Islands. The depression regenerated on August 8. It soon strengthened into a tropical storm and was named Li, which is Hawaiian for "".cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994/td8e/tropdisc/tcd0821z.gif|title=Tropical Storm Li Special Discussion Number 22|date=1994-08-08|publisher=National Hurricane Center|format=GIF|author=Hablutzel|accessdate=2008-09-14] Li approached the dateline on its generally westward heading. Just before crossing, it intensified into a minimal Category 1 hurricane. It crossed the dateline on August 12 and became a typhoon in the 1994 Pacific typhoon season. Wind shear from a tropical upper-tropospheric trough weakened back into a tropical storm as it crossed the dateline, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center downgraded Li with its first advisory.cite web|url=http://metocph.nmci.navy.mil/jtwc/atcr/1994atcr/pdf/cep/08e.pdf|title=Typhoon Li (08E)|pages=106|accessdate=2008-09-24|publisher=Joint Typhoon Warning Center|format=PDF|work=1994 Annual Tropical Cyclone Report] Li stayed a tropical storm until August 16, where it weakened into a tropical depression. The system then began recurving, and dissipated on August 18.cite web|url=http://metocph.nmci.navy.mil/jtwc/atcr/1994atcr/pdf/cep/08e.pdf|title=Typhoon Li (08E)|pages=105|accessdate=2008-09-24|publisher=Joint Typhoon Warning Center|format=PDF|work=1994 Annual Tropical Cyclone Report] A weakening Tropical Depression Li caused showers on Wake Island. Other than there, Li had no impact on any land, and no casualties or damage were reported.

Hurricane Li is one of only six tropical cyclones to exist on all three tropical cyclone basins in the Pacific Ocean. It is also one of only three systems to form as a depression in the east Pacific but be named in the central; the other two are Lala and Iniki. However, the question of whether Li actually actually did those two things is somewhat complicated. Although the National Hurricane Center issued advisories on Tropical Depression Eight-E, Li's first data point in the official database has a longitude of 140°W, "exactly" on the boundary between the east and central Pacific. However, in its preliminary report, the NHC includes a preliminary set of track data including several positions east of 140°W.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994/td8e/prenhc/prelim01.gif|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Depression Eight-E (Hurricane Li)|date=1994-10-20|author=Edward Rappaport|publisher=National Hurricane Center|format=GIF|accessdate=2008-09-24] Hence, Li's status as an east Pacific tropical cyclone is debatable.

Tropical Storm Hector

1-min winds=55
On August 7, a tropical depression formed from a tropical wave a few hundred miles south of Baja California. It became Tropical Storm Hector quickly, and as it paralleled the coast of Mexico, it began to weaken, dissiating on August 10. No damage was reported anywhere.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/hector/prelim01.gif|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Hector|date=1994-09-20|author=Lixion Avila|format=GIF|pages=2|accessdate=2008-09-24|publisher=National Hurricane Center|pages=1]

Tropical Storm Hector was forecast to approach the Baja California Peninsula. A tropical storm watch was issued for part of the peninsula on August 8.

An area of disturbed weather organized into a tropical depression on August 9 while located convert|740|mi|km southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. The depression moved westward without organizing, and dissipated on August 14.

Moisture from the system produced heavy rainfall over the island of Hawaii, totaling to over convert|15|in|mm. The flooding closed all major roads in Hilo, and was considered the worst flooding in 40 years. The rainfall destroyed 2 homes and damaged 214, 14 severely. It also damaged roads and businesses.

1-min winds=150
Tropical Depression Ten-E formed on August 11 south of Mexico. It headed generally westward, and was upgraded into a tropical storm twelve hours after it formed and was named John. John fluctuated in strength as it headed west, always managing to stay at tropical storm strength. On August 20, steady intensification began, and John was a major hurricane when it entered the central Pacific. It continued westward, reaching Category 5 intensity on August 23. It passed around convert|245|mi|km south of Hawaii, and passed just north of Johnston Atoll on August 26.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/john/prelim01.gif|author=Miles Lawrence|date=1995-01-03|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane John|publisher=National Hurricane Center|format=GIF|accessdate=2008-09-24] John stayed at hurricane intensity until it crossed the dateline on August 28, becoming a typhoon of the 1994 Pacific typhoon season. After weakening into a tropical storm, John recurved, looped, and recurved again.cite web|url=http://metocph.nmci.navy.mil/jtwc/atcr/1994atcr/pdf/cep/10e.pdf|format=PDF|title=Typhoon John (10-E)|publisher=Joint Typhoon Warning Center|pages=128|accessdate=2008-08-24] It reintensified, and was a hurricane when it recrossed the dateline to reenter the central Pacific. John headed north-northeast until it went extratropical on September 10, thirty one days after it formed.

Ahead of the hurricane, the 1100 people at Johnston Atoll evacuated. On the atoll, John caused $15 million (1994 USD) in damage. No deaths were reported. Other than on Johnston, Hurricane John had no impact on land.

Hurricane John was the longest lasting and most continuous tropical cyclone on Earth in recorded history.cite web|url=http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/tcfaq/E6.html|author=Neal Dorst|title=Subject: E6) Which tropical cyclone lasted the longest?|work=FAQ: Hurricanes, Typhoons, and Tropical Cyclones|publisher=Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory|accessdate=2008-09-24] It is also one of six tropical cyclones to exist in all three basins of the Pacific Ocean, an uncommon west-to-east dateline crosser, and one of the few tropical cyclone to cross the dateline more than once.

Tropical Depression Twelve-E

On August 14, an area of convection organized enough to be considered a tropical depression. It was steered by John's circulation, and it was never expected to strengthen much because it was close to cool waters.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994/td12e/tropdisc/nep1294.001|date=1994-08-14|author=Mayfield|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-24|title=Tropical Depression Twelve-E Discussion Number 1] The cyclone drifted north, then northeast, north again, northwest, and then west.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994/td12e/prenhc/prelim01.gif|format=GIF|author=Richard Pasch|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Depression Twelve-E|date=1995-01-13|accessdate=2008-09-25|publisher=National Hurricane Center] The National Hurricane Center declared the depression dissipated on August 15.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994/td12e/tropdisc/nep1294.005|title=Tropical Depression Twelve-E Discussion Number 5|author=Mayfield|date=1994-08-15|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-24] The depression had no effects anywhere.

Hurricane Kristy

On August 28, Tropical Depression Thirteen-E formed about convert|1300|mi|km southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was named Tropical Storm Kristy on August 30. As it crossed into the central Pacific, a banding-type eye formed and it became a hurricane.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/kristy/prelim01.gif|date=1994-10-17|author=Edward Rappaport|accessdate=2008-09-25|format=GIG|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Kristy|pages=1] Twelve hours later, it Category 2 intensity. Kristy weakened steadily from that point due to wind shear. It passed about convert|300|mi|km|abbr=on south of Hawaii, and dissipated on September 5. The lowest central pressure of Kristy is unknown. The last estimate was made when Kirsty was still a tropical storm.

As it approached the Hawaiian Islands, a high surf advisory and a high wind warnings were issued for the Big Island of Hawaii. No damage or deaths were reported in association with this system.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/kristy/prelim02.gif|date=1994-10-17|author=Edward Rappaport|accessdate=2008-09-25|format=GIG|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Kristy|pages=2]

Hurricane Lane

1-min winds=115
The same tropical wave that spawned Tropical Depression Five in the Atlantic became Tropical Depression Fourteen-E on September 3. It quickly became Tropical Storm Lane. A high pressure ridge centered itself north of Lane, keeping the storm on a westward track. This brought Lane into very favorable conditions, and Lane intensified. When the tropical storm reached hurricane strength, it entered a phase of rapid intensification, reaching winds of about convert|135|mi/h|km/h|abbr=on, making it a category four hurricane. The high pressure ridge shifted eastward, and allowed Lane to enter unfavorable conditions. Lane dissipated on September 10. [National Hurricane Center.

Tropical Storm Mele

Infobox Hurricane Small
Track=Mele 1994 track.pngFormed=September 6

A tropical disturbance became Tropical Depression Two-C on September 6. It reached tropical storm strength the next day, being named Mele. The name Mele means "" in the Hawaiian language and is also the Hawaiian form of "".cite web|url=http://www.behindthename.com/name/mele|title=Behind the Name: Meaning, Origin and History of the name Mele|publisher=Behind the Name: The Etymology and History of First Names|accessdate=2008-09-24] Mele headed west-northwest and weakened back into a tropical depression on September. It dissipated later that day without incident.

Tropical Storm Miriam

Miriam formed from a weak disturbance on September 15. It strengthened slightly into Tropical Storm Miriam, and dissipated on September 21, having led an uneventful life without impact. In an interesting occurrence, the low-level remnants of Miriam were still visible for weeks after the storm dissipated near 140°W.cite web|publisher=National Hurricane Center|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/miriam/prelim01.gif|author=Miles Lawrence|accessdate-2008-09-26|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Miriam|date=1994-10-30|format=GIF|pages=1]

Tropical Storm Norman

A tropical depression formed on September 19, and became Tropical Storm Norman the next day. After tracking northwest, it began to turn north in response to a trough, and convection began to diminish. Norman dissipated on September 22 without having ever affected land.cite web|publisher=National Hurricane Center|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/norman/prelim01.gif|accessdate=2008-09-26|author=Max Mayfield|date=1997-10-17|format=GIF|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Norman|pages=1]

Hurricane Olivia

Infobox Hurricane Small

Track=Olivia 1994 track.pngFormed=September 22
Dissipated=September 29
1-min winds=130
Hurricane Olivia ultimately formed from a disturbance that had seperated from the intertropical convergence zone and become distinct by September 19. The disturbance slowly headed westward and it organized into a tropical deprssion on September 22 while located about convert|720|mi|km south of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. The depression headed west-northwestwards and strengthened into Tropical Storm Olivia on September 22. It steadily intensified and was a hurricane on September 24. It then rapidly strengthened into a powerful major hurricane. It slowly curled to the northwest as it was observed by NOAA research aircraft.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/olivia/prelim01.gif|accessdate=2008-09-26|author=Richard Pasch|publisher=National Hurricane Center|pages=1|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Olivia|format=GIF] Olivia peaked in intensity on September 25. Meanwhile, a large cyclone off the extreme southern part of California induced a northward path. As Olivia started a small anticyclonic loop, wind shear began to weaken the hurricane. When Olivia was finished the loop, it had weakened to a tropical storm. It then headed westward. It weakened into a tropical depression on September 28 and dissipated the next day. No impact was reported.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/olivia/prelim02.gif|accessdate=2008-09-26|author=Richard Pasch|publisher=National Hurricane Center|pages=2|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Olivia|format=GIF]

When it formed, Hurricane Olivia was the third most-intense Pacific hurricane ever recorded, and second most-intense in the east Pacific proper. Since then, several other hurricanes have reached a lower pressure, but Olivia remains the ninth most-intense Pacific hurricane, seventh-most in the east Pacific proper. Olivia was also the strongest September hurricane at the time. It held that record until Hurricane Linda broke it. Olivia is still the third strongest September hurricane. Olivia is also the most intense Pacific hurricane "not" to reach Category 5 intensity. Hurricane Olivia shares its intensity records and and rankings with 2001's Juliette.

Tropical Storm Paul

A nearly stationary cluster of thunderstorms and convection that had been hanging around since September 15 and escaped destruction by Tropical Storm Miriam organized into Tropical Depression Eighteen-E on September 24. It was located between Miriam's remnants and the developing Olivia. It became Tropical Storm Paul on the afternoon of September 25. It peaked in intensity on September 27. Then, upper outflow from the nearby Olivia started shearing the tropical cyclone. Paul had been completely destroyed by September 30.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/paul/prelim01.gif|author=Edward Rappaport|date=1994-10-18|publisher=National Hurricane Center|pages=1|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Paul|format=GIF|accessdate=2008-09-24] The tropical cyclone never threatened land, and consequently, no damage or deaths were reported.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/paul/prelim02.gif|author=Edward Rappaport|date=1994-10-18|publisher=National Hurricane Center|pages=2|title=Preliminary Report Tropical Storm Paul|format=GIF|accessdate=2008-09-24]

Hurricane Rosa

1-min winds=90
An area of disturbed weather organized into a tropical depression at midday on October 8. It had trouble organizing, and advisories were discontinued for a while. The cyclone finally became a tropical storm on October 11 and was named Rosa. It moved glacially, but eventually a trough steered Rosa north and then northeast. Rosa intensified quickly, peaking at Category 2 intensity just before landfall near La Concepcion on the morning of October 14. Rosa quickly decayed over the mountains of Mexico, and its cloud shield rapidly accelerated northward through the United States, spreading moisture.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/rosa/prelim01.gif|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Rosa|date=1994-11-22|author=Lixion Avila|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-24|pages=1]

On October 12, a hurricane watch was issued for the coast from Culiacan to Manzanillo and the Baja California Peninsula south of latitude 24°N. At the same time, a tropical storm warning was issued from Manzanillo to Tepic. On October 14, a hurricane warning was issued for the coast between Culiacan and Cabo Corrientes, and a tropical storm warning south of Cabo Corrientes to Manzanillo. All watches and warnings were lifted later that day.cite web|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1994-prelim/rosa/prelim05.gif|title=Preliminary Report Hurricane Rosa|date=1994-11-22|author=Lixion Avila|format=GIF|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2008-09-24|pages=5]

Four deaths, two in each of Nayarit and Durango, were reported. Four people were missing in Sinaloa. All of the deaths were due to drowning. More than 100,000 people had their homes damaged in Nayarit. Telephone poles and power lines were downed in Sinaloa. Rain caused landslides and flash-flooding in mountainous areas. In Jalisco, mudslides forced the evacuation of 400 people from two coastal villages.cite news|page=3|url=http://www.thehurricanearchive.com/Viewer.aspx?

The season began with the formation of Tropical Depression One-E on June 18 and ended with the dissipation of Tropical Depression Nona on October 26. No named systems formed in May, three in June, four in July, five in August, six in September, two in October, and none in November. The total length of the season, from the formation of the first depression to the dissipation of the last, was 130 days.

Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE)

Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) is a measure of how active a hurricane season is. It is calculated by squaring the windspeed of a cyclone with at least tropical storm-force winds every six hours, summing the results, and dividing that total by 104. As a tropical cyclone does not have gale-force winds until it becomes a tropical storm, tropical depressions are not included in these tables. For all storms, ACE is given to three significant figures. The ACE in the east Pacific proper (140°W to North America) is given; the ACE in the central Pacific (the international dateline to 140°W) is given in brackets. The table includes the ACE for Li and John only during those storm's time east of the dateline. Their ACE west of the dateline is part of the totals of the 1994 typhoon season.

The National Hurricane Center uses ACE to rank hurricane seasons as above-normal, near-normal, and below-normal. It defines below-normal as having an ACE less than 95*104 kt2 kt2; It defines above normal as having an ACE above 150*104 kt2 along with the numbers of any two of the following above average: tropical storms (15), hurricanes (9), or major hurricanes (4); It defines near-normal as having an ACE between 100*104 kt2 and 150*104 kt2, or an ACE above 150*104 kt2 with fewer than two of the numbers of the following above average: tropical storms (15), hurricanes (9), or major hurricanes (4).

This season has a total of seventeen tropical storms, nine hurricanes, and five major hurricanes. The total ACE of this season is 185*104 kt2. This qualifies this season as above-normal.

torm names

The following names were used for named storms that formed in the eastern Pacific in 1994; names that were not assigned are marked in gray. No names were retired, so it was used again in the 2000 season. This is the same list used for the 1988 season except for Ileana, which replaced Iva. A storm was named Ileana for the first time in 1994.

Three names were used from the Central Pacific list - Li, Mele and Nona. This was the first usage for all of these names.
