  • NASA peers into the rainfall of Eastern Pacific' Tropical Storm Aletta

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm Aletta was centered about 410 miles (655 kilometers) southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, Wednesday afternoon.

The first hurricane, and the first major hurricane, of 2018 has formed (a major hurricane is considered a Category 3 or higher). It grew from a Tropical Storm to a Category 3 hurricane within 24 hours. The storm has maximum sustained winds of 140 miles per hour (220 kph) and is moving toward the west-northwest at five miles per hour (seven kph).

"The hurricane has less than a day to strengthen before the environment becomes less hospitable, with a notable increase in shear and decrease in water temperatures forecast this weekend", the National Hurricane Center said.

The center said the storm was likely to strengthen some more as it moved farther out into the Pacific, but predicted Aletta would begin weakening Saturday.

The Weather Channel reported the average date when the first named storm forms in the Eastern Pacific Basin is June 10, according to NHS data from 1971 to 2009.

Jonathan Erdman is a senior meteorologist at weather.com and has been an incurable weather geek since a tornado narrowly missed his childhood home in Wisconsin at age 7.

Another disturbance is coming in right behind Aletta though.

With strengthening, Bud is expected to become a hurricane late Sunday or early Monday.
