The 1977 Central Pacific Tropical Cyclone Season

There were no tropical cyclones reported in the Central North Pacific during 1977. The Western North Pacific experienced the smallest number of typhoons (11) since JTWC's formation in 1959. Eastern North Pacific activity was also at a minimum; only 8 tropical storms or hurricanes were reported during the year in that area--the lowest number since 1966 when excellent satellite full coverage began.
