Category 3 Hurricane Bud heads north off Mexico

Category 3 Hurricane Bud heads north off Mexico

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

"These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the NHC said.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Bud had maximum sustained winds of 115 miles per hour (185 kph) Monday morning. The remnant moisture should move up into New Mexico and southeast Arizona.

According to the National Hurricane Center, it has a 10 percent chance of tropical development within the next 48 hours and a 20 percent chance of development in the next five days.

The center said the hurricane's core was moving farther from Mexico's southwestern coast but still could generate unsafe heavy surf and rip currents over the coming days.

Interests along the Mexican coast from Acapulco to Zihuatanejo, Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos should monitor the progress of this second system into next week.

Last month, forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted a near- or above-normal 2018 hurricane season in the central Pacific. That same climate pattern could also put a damper on the Atlantic hurricane season.

Forecasters are tracking a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the western Caribbean Sea that is associated with a trough of low pressure.
