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 storm (May 9)Edit

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. ;)

Eastern Pacific:

  • Adrian -

  • Irwin - Is a category 4, does not affect land, but is crocodile-shaped from above.Tries to track towards Japan. 5.10.94.220 00:08, July 17, 2017 (UTC)
  • Jova - Becomes a category 5, tracks from California, then Hawaii, then to Tokyo and Seoul. Social media consistently makes memes referring to Jay Z and Jehovah's Witnesses. Church leaders (Jehovah Witnesses) worldwide are infuriated because of this, and asks the naming centre for the name to be retired and replace with something more sensible. This angers SJW activists, who are strong advocates for gender-neutral hurricane names, such as "Jova", when they find out it was replaced with "Jessica". 5.10.94.220 00:08, July 17, 2017 (UTC)
