Hurricane Bud strengthens off Mexico's Pacific coast

Hurricane Aletta update Has Aletta intensified

GETTY The National Hurricane Centre in Miami has so far issued no warnings for the US

"Significantly cooler waters around the southern tip of Baja California should reduce Bud's intensity below hurricane status before it reaches that land", the centre said.

In just 24 hours, Aletta went from a tropical storm to a Category 4 hurricane, doubling its maximum sustained winds (70 mph to 140 mph) by the 9 a.m. MDT Friday National Hurricane Center advisory.

The Miami-based US National Hurricane Center offered similar data, but said it would start to slowly lose steam as it continues on a northwest track on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Aletta's winds were down to 40 miles per hour (65 kph) and it was predicted to dissipate by late Monday or early Tuesday.

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

Southwestern Mexico should expect several inches of rainfall from Bud, with the possibility of ten inches in certain areas.

Two major category 5 hurricanes, Irma and Maria, ploughed through the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the United States west coast during 2017's extremely active Atlantic storm season, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. Bud is expected to become a Category 2 Hurricane by Monday, with winds of 110mph.

However, tropical-storm-force wind gusts (over 39 mph) could begin affecting southern Baja California as soon as Wednesday.

The outer bands of Bud will bring heavy rain to western coast of Mexico today, some areas could see up to 10 inches.
