Mexico has discontinued the Tropical Storm Watch

hurricane bud

At 300 PM MDT (2100 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Bud was located near latitude 17.0 North, longitude 107.4 West. Bud is moving toward the northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue through tonight with a decrease in forward speed. A turn toward the north-northwest is expected on Tuesday, and this general
motion should continue into mid-week. On the forecast track, the core of Bud and its stronger winds are expected to continue moving away from the southwestern coast of mainland Mexico.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher gusts. Bud is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some additional strengthening or fluctuations in intensity are possible later today, but a slow weakening trend is expected to begin on Tuesday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the center , and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 955 mb (28.20 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
———————-
RAINFALL: Bud is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches across much of southwestern Mexico, with isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches into Tuesday afternoon. These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

SURF: Swells generated by Bud will continue to affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next few days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
