The cyclone summaries are based on tropical cyclone reports written by the authors and other NHC hurricane specialists: Jack Beven, Eric Blake, Daniel Brown, James Franklin, Richard Knabb, Michelle Mainelli, and Richard Pasch. Best-track data west of 140°W were provided by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center. Track charts and figures were produced with the help of Ethan Gibney and Joan David. Verification results and tables were provided by James Franklin. Local impacts for Mexico were provided mainly by the Mexican Weather Service.
