It was centered about 265 miles south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico, and was moving northwest at 7 mph.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Bud has maximum sustained winds of 115 miles per hour (185 kph). According to the NHC, Hurricane Bud is expected to move north-northwest on Tuesday into the midweek.

"Bud is now a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale".

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

"On the forecast track, the core of Bud and its stronger winds are expected to remain well offshore of the southwestern coast of mainland Mexico". Rainfall of 3 to 6 inches, with isolated patches of 10 inches, was possible over much of that region into Tuesday afternoon. "These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides", the agency warned.

Aletta was the first hurricane of the season and went from a tropical storm to category 4 hurricane in just 24 hours last week but it too was located well away from the coast.

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.

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