Second Hurricane of the Season Hurricane Bud Nears Western Mexico

Tropical Depression Three-E Forms South of Mexico; Aletta Rapidly Weakening South of Baja California

Hurricane Bud strengthening off western coast of Mexico

Hurricane Bud weakened slightly and was once again a Category 3 storm off Mexico's Pacific coast on Tuesday, as forecasters said they expected cooler waters to rob most of its punch before a potential collision with resorts on the southern Baja California Peninsula.

A graphic provided by the National Hurricane Center shows the location of Cat 3 Hurricane Bud.

"A weakening trend is expected to begin later today and continue through Thursday while Bud approaches southern Baja California Sur", the NHC said.

The hurricane center said the storm was about 230 miles southwest of Cabo Corrientes, near Puerto Vallarta. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries. NOAA's GOES-West satellite captured an image of Hurricane Bud on June 11.

The heavy rain could cause deadly flash floods and mudslides, the NHC said.

The swell also will generate strong rip and side currents, creating hazardous conditions for swimmers and surfers.

The mistake seemed to go unnoticed by the former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci , seated next to Huntsman. The summit was part of a "changed era", North Korea's state-run KCNA news agency said in its first comments on the event.

Two major category 5 hurricanes, Irma and Maria, ploughed through the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the USA west coast during 2017's extremely active Atlantic storm season, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.

By mid-morning on Tuesday, Bud was moving towards the northwest at around 6 mph (9 km/h) and was around 325 miles (523 kilometers) south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas.

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

The 2018 hurricane season is here and after last year's devastating storms like Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, officials are warning residents and tourists alike to be prepared if severe weather comes.
