Category 3 Hurricane Bud will produce rain and wind on Pacific coast


The storm is expected to generate 3 to 6 inches of rain in southwestern Mexico, the NHC said, warning of possible flash floods and mud slides. At the bottom left is Hurricane Bud in the eastern Pacific. Its center was located about 260 miles south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes and 440 miles south-southeast of the tip of Baja California. The storm peaked on Friday as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 miles per hour (220 kph).

While the storm may strengthen again today, it will likely begin weakening as early as tomorrow tomorrow.

The hurricane is moving north-west at about 10mph - a course it is expected to take until mid-week, the NHC said. It is expected to bring rain to much of southwestern Mexico, with isolated amounts of 10 inches.

In an average season, the Atlantic Basin will experience 12 tropical storms, six hurricanes, and two major hurricanes.
