Hurricane Bud: Path, models, latest forecast of Category 3 hurricane today

Hurricane Bud

Bud is the second Pacific Ocean hurricane of the season, following Tropical Storm Aletta, which is weakening after veering well away from land. Its center was located about 260 miles south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes and 440 miles south-southeast of the tip of Baja California. It is expected to continue moving northwest today and tonight with a drop in forward speed.

The second Eastern North Pacific hurricane of the season is whipping up 120 miles per hour winds but moving at a glacial pace of about 7 miles per hour.

The hurricane is moving north-west at about 10mph - a course it is expected to take until mid-week, the NHC said. The storm peaked on Friday as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 miles per hour (220 kph).

However, environmental conditions could become more conducive for some limited development when the system moves into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week.

Hurricane Bud is expected to deliver 3 inches to 6 inches of rain to much of southwestern Mexico, and up to 10 inches in isolated pockets. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Aletta weakened into remnant low-pressure system in the Pacific, far from the Mexican coast. "These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides", the agency warned.

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