Hurricane Bud forms in Pacific west of Mexico

Hurricane Bud forms in Pacific west of Mexico

Mexican experts said Bud - the second hurricane of the Pacific season - could make landfall on Friday in the tourist haven of Cabo San Lucas, but as a tropical storm.

NHC forecasters said: "Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 115 miles per hour (185 km/h) with higher gusts". The remnant moisture should move up into New Mexico and southeast Arizona.

Bud's strongest winds reach out 35 miles from its core, while its winds of at least 39 mph - tropical storm strength - extend 125 miles, which means they could touch the coast as it moves past.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) today reported on a broad area of showers and thunderstorms that have persisted over the southwestern Caribbean Sea for the past several hours. The hurricane center warned that this could cause flash floods and mudslides. In addition, ocean swells generated by Bud will continue to affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next few days.




The center said the hurricane still could generate unsafe surf and rip currents over the coming days, with heavy swells reaching the peninsula later Tuesday.

At that time, Bud is expected to have weakened to a tropical storm, with periods of rain and gusty winds.

The hot eastern Pacific hurricane season turned hotter early Tuesday.

There's a chance a tropical depression or storm could develop in the Gulf of Mexico later this week - but it's a low chance as of Monday afternoon. That same climate pattern could also put a damper on the Atlantic hurricane season. With tropical systems, it's best to prepare for the worst-case scenario - just in case.
