Welcome to the betting pools for the 2017 Pacific hurricane season! Enjoy!

To keep it fun, don't bet on storms that have already formed!

No actual betting is going on here!

Note: Like with the Atlantic, I've slightly changed the depression, named storm, and hurricane prediction sections here, and I've also removed the subtropical storm section on these betting pools because the waters south of Mexico in the EPac are too warm to support the formation of such hybrid storms. The only basins where subtropical storms occur on a semi-regular basis are the SWIO and ATL basins, so that section only really needs to be on those betting pools.

Informal betting on date of formation of first stormEdit

You can add in your own date if you want to.

Informal betting on strangest stormEdit

What storm do you think will shred the rules of climatology the most? Please tell why, it makes it more fun.

This section is just for fun. There will likely be no winner. Because of this, you can bet on as many names as you want, but please do not cross out the names as they form and please do not bet on a storm that has already formed. ;)
