Hurricane Pali became the earliest hurricane on record in the central Pacific Ocean Monday evening and is now one of the closest hurricane-strength tropical cyclones to the equator on record. 

This is on the heels of a historically active 2015 tropical season in the Pacific Ocean, including a Tropical Depression Nine-C, which formed near the end of the year and dissipated on Jan. 1, 2016.
