The 2004 Pacific hurricane season had twelve named storms – the fewest in a season since 1999. It officially started on May 15, 2004 in the eastern Pacific, and on June 1, 2004 in the central Pacific. The season officially ended on November 30, 2004, in both portions of the Pacific Ocean. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northeastern Pacific Ocean.
Few tropical cyclones in the East Pacific this year were notable, as this season was the first since 1990 to result in no deaths. Hurricane Javier, the strongest storm of the season, caused moderate damage in Mexico and dropped rainfall as far north as North Dakota. In addition, Hurricane Howard produced high tides along the California coastline on Labor Day weekend, resulting in more than 1,000 lifeguard rescues.
