Hurricane Bud grows to Category 3 force off Mexico's Pacific coast

Hurricane Bud grows to Category 3 force off Mexico's Pacific coast

The second named storm of the Pacific hurricane season grew into a Category 4 storm off Mexico's Pacific coast on Tuesday, as forecasters believe it will weaken before it impacts the popular resorts along the southern Baja California peninsula. It was centered about 440 miles south-southeast of the tip of the Baja peninsula and was moving northwest at 7 mph.

The NHC said, with maximum sustained winds of 120 miles per hour, Bud is now moving northwest at about seven miles per hour.

A graphic provided by the National Hurricane Center shows the location of Cat 3 Hurricane Bud.

"Even though Bud is now a powerful hurricane, it is going to pass over ocean waters of progressively decreasing heat content", the center said.

Forecasters said Bud was expected to strengthen further before a slow weakening trend starts Tuesday.




Bud is expected to produce rainfall accumulations of 75 to 150 millimeters across much of southwestern Mexico and waves of three to four meters in Michoacán, Colima and Jalisco.

The coast will also continue to see swell and potentially life threatening surf and rip in southwestern Mexico.

Both depressions come in the wake of tropical storm Alberto, which slammed into Mexico, the Caribbean and the United States in late May, killing 10 people.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Aletta's winds were down to 40 miles per hour (65 kph) and it was predicted to dissipate by late Monday or early Tuesday. The storm became a major hurricane Monday when it surpassed Category 3.
