The 1988 Pacific hurricane season was a Pacific hurricane season that saw a below-average amount of tropical cyclones form, and that had only one landfalling storm. It officially began May 15, 1988 in the eastern Pacific, and June 1, 1988 in the central Pacific and lasted until November 30, 1988. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northeastern Pacific Ocean. The first named storm, Tropical Storm Aletta, formed on June 16, and the last-named storm, Tropical Storm Miriam, was previously named Hurricane Joan in the Atlantic Ocean before crossing Central America and re-emerging in the eastern Pacific; Miriam continued westward and dissipated on November 2.

The season produced 23 tropical depressions, of which 15 attained tropical storm status. Seven storms reached hurricane status, three of which became major hurricanes. The strongest storm of the season, Hurricane Hector, formed on July 30 to the south of Mexico and reached peak winds of 145 mph (230 km/h)—Category 4 status—before dissipating over open waters on August 9; Hector was never a threat to land. Tropical Storm Gilma was the only cyclone in the season to make landfall, crossing the Hawaiian Islands, although there were numerous near-misses. Gilma's Hawaiian landfall was unusual, but not unprecedented.

easonal activity

The total tropical activity in the season was below-average. There were 13 cyclones in the Eastern Pacific, as well as two in the Central. Of the 15 cyclones, one crossed from the Atlantic Ocean into the Pacific, and another moved from the Central Pacific to the Western Pacific. In the Eastern Pacific, there were seven cyclones peaking as a tropical storm, and six hurricanes, of which two reached Category 3 intensity or higher on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. A tropical storm and a major hurricane occurred in the Central Pacific.cite web|author=National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration|year=1996|title=Average Cumulative Number of Systems Per Year|accessdate=2007-10-13|publisher=National Hurricane Center| url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gifs/pastprofileEP.gif]

Tropical Storm Gilma made the only landfalls of the season in the Hawaiian Islands, causing some rainfall, but no direct deaths or damage occurred as a result of it. These were the only landfalls in the season that were made, which is unusual as most landfalls in the Eastern Pacific occur on the Mexican coast. This is due to the closeness of the Mexican region to the major source of tropical activity to the west of Central America.cite web|author=Centro de Ciencias de la Atmósfera|year=2003|title=Climatology of landfalling hurricanes and tropical storms in Mexico|accessdate=2008-03-12|publisher=Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México|format=PDF| url=http://www.ejournal.unam.mx/atm/Vol16-4/ATM16401.pdf] Hurricane Uleki, the strongest hurricane in the Central Pacific region during the season, caused two drownings in Oahu and heavy waves hit the coast of the Hawaiian Islands. Tropical Storm Miriam, the last storm of the season, formed as a result of Hurricane Joan from the Atlantic, and flooding resulted in parts of Central America, due to heavy rainfall.

Timeline of tropical activity in 1988 Pacific hurricane season

Tropical Depression One-E

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac


Formed=June 15
Dissipated=June 18
1-min winds=30
A tropical disturbance organized into the first eastern Pacific tropical depression of the season on June 15. A convective band on the north and west sides of the system became well-defined, and anticyclonic outflow allowed for initial organization.cite web|author=Gross|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression One-E Discussion One|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-02|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td1e/tropdisc/tcd1518z.gif] After forming, the depression tracked west-southwestward and intensified due to disrupted outflow from a large air stream disturbance.cite web|author=Clark|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression One-E Discussion Three|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-02|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td1e/tropdisc/tcd1603z.gif] On June 16, strong convection with spiral banding developed over the depression, although it failed to strengthen further.cite web|author=Gross|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression One-E Discussion Six|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-02|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td1e/tropdisc/tcd1621z.gif] cite web|author=Clark|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression One-E Discussion Seven|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-02|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td1e/tropdisc/tcd1703z.gif] A low pressure system northwest of the depression in combination with Tropical Storm Aletta to the northeast caused the depression to weaken, and it dissipated on June 18.cite web|author=Case|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression One-E Discussion Fourteen|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-02|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td1e/tropdisc/tcd1818z.gif]

Tropical Storm Aletta

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac


Track=Aletta 1988 track.pngFormed=June 16
Dissipated=June 21
1-min winds=60
Pressure=992
A tropical wave moved off the coast of Africa and progressed westward through the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, before crossing over Central America on June 13 and emerging into the warm waters of the east Pacific on June 14. Shortly after, satellite imagery showed good upper-level outflow, although cloud banding remained disorganized. On June 16, the broad circulation better organized on the northeastern section, with deep convection developing. A tropical depression formed later that day about 200 miles (320 km) to the southeast of Acapulco, Mexico. It developed further as it moved northward toward the southwest coast of Mexico, and had organized sufficiently to be named Tropical Storm Aletta on June 17. The cyclone drifted north-northwest for the next 36 hours before turning westward, parallel to the Mexican coast. The storm began to lose its convection on June 19 and weakened into a tropical depression later that day. The depression weakened further into a weak low-level circulation before dissipating on June 21.cite web|author=Harold P.

Tropical Storm Bud

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac


Track=Bud 1988 track.pngFormed=June 20
Dissipated=June 22
1-min winds=45
Pressure=1000
Satellite imagery first detected a low-level circulation on June 20, associated with some heavy convection, 200 miles (325 km) south of the MexicoGuatemala border, and it intensified into a tropical depression. The cyclone moved northwest then west-northwest over two days. A 40 mph (65 km/h) wind report from a ship on June 21 allowed the depression to be upgraded to Tropical Storm Bud later that day. For the next day, the low-level circulation moved away from its deep convection, dissipating near Acapulco, Mexico. A portion of Bud remaining over land may have been part of the reason for the lack of strengthening of the cyclone. No damage or casualties were reported as a result of Bud.cite web|author=Miles Lawrence|year=1988|title=Tropical Storm Bud Prelim 1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-26|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/bud/prelim01.gif]

Tropical Depression Four-E

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac



Formed=July 1
Dissipated=July 4
1-min winds=25
A system developed in the eastern Pacific, and later strengthened into a tropical depression on July 1, when it obtained a better defined low-level circulation. The center was exposed, with little convection on the northeast side, due to shear aloft.cite web|author=Mayfield|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression Four-E Discussion One|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-03|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td4e/tropdisc/tcd0121z.gif] The system moved to the northwest, while shear continued to move the deep convection of the cyclone to the southwest of its center of circulation.cite web|author=Case|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression Four-E Discussion Two|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-03|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td4e/tropdisc/tcd0203z.gif] The circulation completely lacked deep convection late on July 2, although it continued to have a well-defined low-level center.cite web|author=Mayfield|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression Four-E Discussion Five|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-03|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td4e/tropdisc/tcd0221z.gif] The depression drifted slowly northward, located south of Baja California, before dissipating just south of the peninsula on July 4, with no circulation or deep convection detected.cite web|author=Mayfield|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression Four-E Discussion Nine|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-03|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td4e/tropdisc/tcd0321z.gif] cite web|author=Case|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression Four-E Discussion Ten|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-03|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td4e/tropdisc/tcd0403z.gif] A small amount of associated rainfall affected Baja California, as the cyclone passed near the peninsula.cite web|author=Mayfield|year=1988|title=Tropical Depression Four-E Advisory Nine|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-10-03|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988/td4e/public/tcp0321z.gif]

Hurricane Carlotta

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac



Track=Carlotta 1988 track.pngFormed=July 8
Dissipated=July 15
1-min winds=65
Pressure=994
A tropical wave moved off the western coast of Africa on June 23, and for the next two weeks, moved through the tropical waters of the Atlantic Ocean and later crossed Central America. It began developing further when it entered the Pacific Ocean and became a dense area of moisture and cloudiness. The wave developed into a disturbance on July 8, and attained tropical depression status in the afternoon on July 8, south of Mexico. After entering a favorable area of warm waters, the depression strengthened to Tropical Storm Carlotta on July 9. Carlotta continued to develop, reached peak strength, and developed into Hurricane Carlotta on July 11.cite web|author=RAC/BAM|year=1988|title=Tropical Storm Carlotta Prelim 1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-26|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/carlotta/prelim01.gif] During the duration of the storm, Carlotta was not considered a hurricane, however after post-season reanalysis Carlotta's strength was upgraded to minimal hurricane status.cite web|first=Harold P.|last=Gerrish|coauthors=Mayfield, Max|year=1988|title=Eastern North Pacific Tropical Cyclones of 1988|publisher=Monthly Weather Review|format=PDF|accessdate=2008-03-13|url=http://ams.allenpress.com/archive/1520-0493/117/10/pdf/i1520-0493-117-10-2266.pdf] As it moved into less favorable conditions it lost strength and weakened to a tropical storm on July 12. Carlotta began to lose its deep convection, and weakened into a tropical depression on July 13 as it moved into cooler waters. It later moved west-southwest and dissipated on July 15.

Tropical Storm Daniel

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac



Track=Daniel 1988 track.pngFormed=July 19
Dissipated=July 26
1-min winds=55
Pressure=994
A tropical wave moved off the coast of northwestern Africa on July 4, and moved through tropical regions of the northern Atlantic and Caribbean Sea without the indication of development. The tropical disturbance crossed Central America on July 14, and from then until July 18, the westward motion decreased, as convection and organization increased over warm waters. It developed into a tropical depression on July 19, and into Tropical Storm Daniel convert|600|mi|km southwest of the southern tip of Baja California on July 20. A high pressure system over the western United States and northern Mexico forced Daniel and an upper-level low on parallel west-northwest paths. Daniel stayed generally the same strength for the next few days, reaching peak strength on July 23. Daniel declined into a tropical depression on July 25 and dissipated on July 26.cite web|author=GBC|year=1988|title=Tropical Storm Daniel Prelim 1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-26|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/daniel/prelim01.gif]

Tropical Storm Emilia

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac


Track=Emilia 1988 track.pngFormed=July 27
Dissipated=August 2
1-min winds=60
Pressure=992
A tropical wave crossed Central America rapidly into the Pacific on July 24. The wave's convection increased on July 25 as it moved further into Pacific waters. It then attained tropical depression status on July 27 and gradual strengthening followed. On July 29, the depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Emilia, 600 miles (965 km) southwest of Baja California. Emilia could not develop deep convection near its center and remained a tropical storm, even though in warm waters. Vertical wind shear from an upper-level low just to the west of Baja California prohibited Emilia from developing. Emilia reached peak strength on July 30, but following this Emilia became overwhelmed with wind shear. Shearing on the deep convection in various parts of the storm weakened Emilia. It weakened into a tropical depression again on August 1, and it steered to the southwest as convection decreased. The depression dissipated on August 2, and its remnants remained for a few more days before disappearing.cite web|author=Jim Gross|year=1988|title=Tropical Storm Emilia Prelim 1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-26|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/emilia/prelim01.gif]

Hurricane Fabio

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac


Track=Fabio 1988 track.pngFormed=July 28
Dissipated=August 9
1-min winds=120
Pressure=943
A well-organized ITCZ disturbance with deep convection organized further over the northeastern Pacific Ocean on July 28.cite web|author=BMM|year=1988|title=Tropical Storm Fabio Prelim 1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-28|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/fabio/prelim01.gif] It developed into a tropical depression later that day, while convert|1000|mi|km southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. The position of Fabio's formation was much further south and west than where most tropical cyclones form during the same time period. The depression moved westward while gradually strengthening and it developed into Tropical Storm Fabio on July 29. It intensified further over the next few days and it intensified into a hurricane on July 31. The system increased its speed as it steadily strengthened further. A trough turned the storm west-northwestward on August 3. Satellite estimates indicated that Fabio reached its maximum intensity later on August 3, with a well-defined eye with very deep convection surrounding it. The Central Pacific Hurricane Center issued a tropical storm watch for the Big Island on August 4, due to the threatening west-northwest turn towards it. However, the retreat of a trough later turned Fabio back to the west and the CPHC discontinued the tropical storm watch on August 5. Fabio's good upper-level conditions later weakened and began to lose its convection over cooler waters. Fabio quickly weakened and it weakened into a tropical storm again later on August 5, and back to a depression on August 6. The depression turned west-northwestward again on August 8, but Fabio dissipated on August 9. As the cyclone moved near the Hawaiian islands, heavy rainfall fell across the chain, peaking at 18.75 inches (476 mm) near Pāpa'ikou on the island of Hawaii.cite web|author=Hydrometeorological Prediction Center|year=1988|title=Tropical Cyclone Point Maxima|publisher=Hydrometeorological Prediction Center|accessdate=2007-01-29|url=http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/tropical/rain/tcmaxima.html]

Tropical Storm Gilma

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac


Track=Gilma 1988 track.pngFormed=July 28
Dissipated=August 3
1-min winds=45
Pressure=1000
A wave that previously moved through the Atlantic from the northwest coast of Africa, crossed over Central America into the Pacific on July 17 or July 18. On July 19, this disturbance was 700 miles (1125 km) to the southeast of the developing Tropical Storm Daniel. The system moved westward for the following week without any signs of intensification. However on July 26 and 27, the system appeared to be strengthening due to a banding pattern. By July 28, the convection underwent further organization with some weak outflow high in the storm. It developed into a tropical depression later on July 28, much further west then most east Pacific storms develop at. For the next day the cyclone remained fairly stationary, but began to strengthen over warm waters. On July 29 the depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Gilma, based on satellite imagery. Limited intensification followed, due to shear high in the storm. It weakened a tropical depression again on July 30, due to weakness depicted in satellite imagery. Gilma then moved west-northwestward through the northeast Pacific. The depression skirted the Hawaiian Islands, but dissipated near Oahu on August 3.cite web|author=BMM|year=1988|title=Tropical Storm Gilma Prelim 1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-28|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/gilma/prelim01.gif] On the Hawaiian Islands there were no direct damage or deaths, although some rainfall occurred on the islands.cite web|author=BMM|year=1988|title=Tropical Storm Gilma Prelim 2|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-28|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/gilma/prelim02.gif]

Hurricane Hector

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac



Track=Hector 1988 track.pngFormed=July 30
Dissipated=August 9
1-min winds=125
Pressure=935
A tropical depression formed on July 30, while 400 miles (645 km) south of Acapulco, Mexico. The depression tracked west-northwestward, becoming Tropical Storm Hector on July 31. Its west-northwest motion continued, due to an area of high pressure to its north, and Hector intensified into a hurricane on August 2. Based on satellite data, the hurricane is estimated to have reached its peak intensity of 145 mph (235 km/h) on August 3; this made Hector a Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, which was the strongest storm of the season. Hector began to move due west on August 5 and it had already begun weakening. The storm continued westward increasing its forward speed. On August 6 it had appeared Hector had strengthened, but steadily weakened afterwards and finally dissipated on August 9, while 650 miles (1,045 km) east of Hilo, Hawaii. Hector maintained an eye throughout its existence as a hurricane, and was never a threat to land.cite web|author=MBL|year=1988|title=Hurricane Hector Prelim 1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-29|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/hector/prelim01.gif]

Hurricane Iva

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac



Track=Iva 1988 track.pngFormed=August 5
Dissipated=August 13
1-min winds=90
Pressure=968
A wave that first came off the northwest coast of Africa moved through the Atlantic, before entering the East Pacific on August 4. The wave developed more organized convection when it entered the region, and it turned into a tropical depression on August 5, while 165 miles (270 km) south of Oaxaca, Mexico. It developed into Tropical Storm Iva on August 6. Iva turned on a west-northwestward course and continued strengthening, before it developed into a hurricane on August 7. The cyclone moved northwestward after becoming a hurricane, and satellites estimate it reached peak intensity on August 8. On the same day Iva passed within 50 miles (80 km) of Socorro Island.

A disturbance that passed off the northwestern African coast on August 3 crossed the Atlantic Ocean, before entering into the Pacific. A tropical depression formed in the East Pacific on August 16, 150 miles (240 km) southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, based on satellite estimates. The cyclone progressed slowly northwestward, and intensified Tropical Storm John on August 17, less than 24 hours after its formation. John continued northwest for a short while, before the low-level center of circulation had been exposed. John degenerated to a tropical depression on August 18 due to a lack of convection, made a loop while less than 100 miles (160 km) south of the southern tip of Baja California. It shortly became a little better organized after completing the loop on August 20, but John dissipated on August 21, southwest of Baja California, due to shearing and cold waters. Its remnants continued northwestward parallel to the southwest coast of Baja California. John caused no reported deaths or damage.cite web|author=GBC|year=1988|title=Hurricane John Prelim 1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-29|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/john/prelim01.gif]

1-min winds=110
Towards the end of August, tropical activity in the ITCZ southeast of the Hawaiian Islands began to be monitored. On August 28, this tropical disturbance organized into a tropical depression, as it was located about 800 miles (1,285 km) southeast of the Big Island. It intensified at a fair rate, and intensified Tropical Storm Uleki the next day. It continued to strengthen, and reached hurricane intensity on August 31. It moved slowly west-northwest until steering currents collapsed on September 1. Now a Category 3 hurricane, Uleki slowly edged north towards the Hawaiian Islands. After looping, Uleki resumed its westward path on September 4. Its stalling in the ocean had weakened it, and the hurricane passed midway between Johnston Island and French Frigate Shoals. Uleki crossed the dateline on September 7. It turned slightly to the north and meandered in the open Pacific days until it dissipated on September 14.

As Uleki drifted towards the Hawaiian Islands, tropical storm watches were issued for Oahu, Kauai, and Niihau on September 3. In addition, reconnaissance missions were flown into the hurricane. Uleki caused heavy surf on the Hawaiian Islands, that being its only significant effect. This heavy surf flooded the southeastern runway on Midway Island, and produced two drownings on Oahu.cite web|author=Central Pacific Hurricane Season|year=1988|title=The 1988 Central Pacific Tropical Cyclone Season|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-30|url=http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/summaries/1988.php] Nineteen people were also rescued from rough surf, with five- to six-foot (1.5 to 1.8 meter) waves, off the coast of beaches in Hawaii.cite web|author=Associated Press|year=1988|title=Hawaii Spared by Hurricane Uleki|publisher=Aiken Standard|accessdate=2008-03-13|url=http://www.thehurricanearchive.com/Viewer.aspx?

Hurricane Kristy

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=EPac


Track=Kristy 1988 track.pngFormed=August 29
Dissipated=September 6
1-min winds=80
Pressure=976
A tropical wave passed off the northwestern coast of Africa on August 6. It did not develop as it passed through the Atlantic Ocean, until August 19 when convection began to form. On August 20 the disturbance turned into Tropical Depression Six in the Atlantic basin. It passed from the Leeward Islands up to the central Caribbean, until it dissipated on August 23. As it passed over Central America, the disturbance had little remaining convection. However, the convection associated with the system began to organize when it entered the Pacific, and it strengthened into a tropical depression on August 29, while located 300 miles (485 km) south-southeast of Acapulco, Mexico. Later that day the depression intensified into Tropical Storm Kristy, based on ship reports of tropical storm force winds. Kristy strengthened into a hurricane on August 31, based solely on satellite imagery. Hurricane Kristy had short lifespan though, and weakened to a tropical storm on September 2. The easterly shear associated with an anticyclone south of Baja California, which caused Kristy's convection to be forced west of the low-level center of the system, and therefore weakened it. Kristy weakened further to a depression on September 3, and weak steering currents allowed the cyclone to remain stationary on September 4, loop the following day, and then began to move eastward. The depression dissipated on September 6, weakening to a low-level swirl. Kristy caused heavy rains and flooding in the Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. More than 20,000 people were evacuated, and a state of emergency was declared. No official casualty or damage figures were reported by the Mexican government.cite web|author=Jim Gross|year=1988|title=Hurricane Kristy Prelim 1|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-29|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/kristy/prelim01.gif] cite web|author=Jim Gross|year=1988|title=Hurricane Kristy Prelim 2|publisher=National Hurricane Center|accessdate=2007-09-29|url=http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/storm_wallets/epacific/ep1988-prelim/kristy/prelim02.gif]

A tropical depression formed on September 21 as an area of deep convection. The cyclone organized slowly though, drifting slowly, initially west then to the northwest. However, the depression recurved northeast, due to a trough. As the cyclone moved northeast, the system strengthened as indicated by an Air Force reconnaissance plane showing tropical storm force winds. It therefore intensified into Tropical Storm Wila on September 25. Wila, however, weakened within a day, and therefore became a tropical depression.

As the low-level circulation organized further in the depression it intensified into Tropical Storm Lane, later on September 21. Lane developed further with an upper-level outflow pattern, and the cyclone turned into a hurricane on September 23. Later on September 23 and on September 24, an eye appeared on satellite imagery. A trough to the northwest of Lane disturbed its upper-level outflow on September 24. Diminishing convection and loss of its eye caused Lane to weaken to a tropical storm on September 27, and into a depression on September 28. Later on September 28, the cyclone moved into cooler waters and Lane lost nearly all of its deep convection. It weakened into a low-level swirl, and Lane dissipated on September 30.

ACE Rating

The table on the right shows the Accumulated Cyclone Energy for each storm in the season. ACE is a measure of the power of a tropical cyclones multiplied by the length of time it existed, so storms that last a long time, as well as particularly strong tropical cyclones, have high ACEs. ACE is only calculated for full advisories on tropical systems at or exceeding 34 knots (39 mph, 63 km/h) or tropical storm strength.

The figures in parentheses are for storms in the Central Pacific basin west of 140°W; those not in parenthesis are for the Eastern Pacific basin.

The cumulative ACE for the Eastern Pacific this season fell within the official "Near Normal" grading.cite web|author=National Climatic Data Center|publisher=NOAA|year=2005|accessdate=2006-08-10|url=http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/img/climate/research/2005/ann/ace-epac-nov30.png|title=East North Pacific ACE: 1949 — 2005]

1988 storm names

The following names were used for named storms that formed in the eastern Pacific in 1988. The names not retired from this list were used again in the 1994 season. This is the same list used for the 1982 season. Names that were not assigned are marked in gray.

Two names from the Central Pacific list were used – Uleki and Wila, both being their first usage.

Retirement

The World Meteorological Organization retired one name in the spring of 1989: Iva. Ileana replaced the name of Iva in the 1994 season.
