Overview of the 2005 Central North Pacific Tropical Cyclone Season
Total activity for the tropical cyclone season was below normal, with three systems occurring within the area of responsibility of the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC). One tropical cyclone (01C) developed within the central Pacific and the other two, Jova and Kenneth, moved into the area from the eastern Pacific. Jova was the strongest of the systems, maintaining category 3 strength for 36 hours, and the strongest tropical cyclone in the central Pacific since Ele in 2002. Although remnants TD-01C and Kenneth contributed to some locally heavy rainfall across Hawaii, there were no deaths recorded or significant property damage reported in the central North Pacific.
