Hurricane Bud strengthening off western coast of Mexico

Tropical Depression Three-E Forms South of Mexico; Aletta Rapidly Weakening South of Baja California

Tropical Storm Bud intensified late on Sunday afternoon into a Category 1 hurricane some 254 miles (410 km) west of the Pacific coast of Mexico, the country's weather service said.

In just 24 hours, Aletta went from a tropical storm to a Category 4 hurricane, doubling its maximum sustained winds (70 mph to 140 mph) by the 9 a.m. MDT Friday National Hurricane Center advisory.

Bud's centre is now about 350 miles south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and is moving northwestward.

The disturbance will likely produce locally heavy rainfall across portions of Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and the Yucatan Peninsula through Thursday, the Hurricane Center said.

The hurricane will churn up the ocean water along the Mexican coast, which could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, the hurricane center said.

While the National Hurricane Center is giving it a low chance of formation in the next 2-5 days, there may be potential form development farther out as the system moves towards the western Gulf of Mexico.

The storm may bring 3 to 6 inches across much of the area, with some locations seeing up to 10 inches of rain through Thursday.

The storm is the second of the 2018 Pacific hurricane season after Tropical Storm Aletta, which is moving west away from land.

The good news is that Bud will begin weakening later today as it encounters cooler waters.

The heart of the storm is expected to remain considerably offshore.

Forecasters for AccuWeather and Global Weather Cycles and Oscillations told Daily Star Online they are both predicting an above-average season - the third in a row.
