Hurricane Bud strengthens to a category 4 in Pacific

Hurricane Bud strengthens off Mexico's Pacific coast

Rainfall of 3 to 6 inches (75 to 150 millimeters), with isolated patches of 10 inches (250 millimeters), was possible over much of the region.

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. Risky ocean swells and rip currents may commence Tuesday. Bud is located east of Tropical Storm Aletta.

As Bud strengthens, swells from the storm "are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions" along the west coast of Mexico, according to the hurricane center. In the image, city lights from coastal Mexico are visible to the east. The image showed a well-formed storm with powerful thunderstorms tightly circling the center. According to the hurricane center, Bud should decrease in speed over the next few days as it approaches land.

Bud's eyewall, containing its strongest winds, will remain far off the southwest Mexican coast.

Kendall Rae-Knight was forced to pack her bags and vacate the villa in a shock eviction on Love Island . Speaking to Adam afterwards, Kendall said: 'Don't feel like you have to explain yourself.

Bud will also create high seas and unsafe rip currents as it approaches land but is expected to begin to weaken before approaching Mexico's Baja California as a tropical storm later this week.

Hurricane Bud, now a Category 3 storm with winds of 125 miles per hour, continued to spin off Mexico's west coast Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center said.

Bud was moving northwest at about 3 miles per hour (6 kph) and was forecast to approach Baja California Sur on Thursday as a tropical storm. The estimated minimum central pressure is 960 millibars.

Mexico issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the southwestern coast of Mexico from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes, popular resort areas.
