Tropical Storms in the Atlantic typically receive more attention then its Pacific counterpart. This is due to the increased risk of landfall in the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean. Tropical storms in the Eastern Pacific do, however, typically generate earlier in the year. The Eastern Pacific tropical season officially starts on May 15th, while the Atlantic topical season starts on June 1st. Warm sea surface temperatures along coastal Central American and Mainland Mexico are largely responsible for the earlier arrival of storms in the Eastern Pacific.
