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

While just last week, Hurricane Aletta kicked off the hurricane season, Hurricane Bud is already strengthening and brewing off the coast of western Mexico, according to an AccuWeather report.

Hurricane Bud strengthened to category 4 overnight but is expected to weaken later today, the United States National Hurricane Center (NHC) said this morning. The remnant moisture should move up into New Mexico and southeast Arizona.

The track forecast brings the center of Bud closest to the southern tip of Baja California and the area around Cabo San Lucas from Thursday into Friday morning, when maximum sustained winds are predicted to be about 55 miles per hour.

Torrential downpours could cause "life-threatening" flash floods, mudslides and waves along coastal areas in Mexico, the NHC said. The storm categories, in increasing strength, are tropical depression, tropical storm and hurricane. A tropical storm watch has been posted for portions of Mexico's west coast.

High surf and rip currents will be a threat much of this week along the southwestern coast of Mexico and the southern Baja Peninsula. Business owners in Los Cabos have been advised to to monitor the progress of Bud throughout the week.

An average Eastern Pacific hurricane season sees the first hurricane form by June 26, according to National Hurricane Center data from 1971 to 2009.

There's a chance a tropical depression or storm could develop in the Gulf of Mexico later this week - but it's a low chance as of Monday afternoon.

The Atlantic hurricane season lasts until November 30.

In the Atlantic basin, some models are hinting at a possible storm later in the week in the Gulf of Mexico.
