  • Hurricane Aletta update Has Aletta intensified

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

Hurricane Bud, now swirling off the west coast of Mexico as a Category 3 storm, is forecast to bring heavy rain to Mexico and possibly the Southwest U.S. over the next few days.

Hurricane Bud was churning the sea west of Mexico Tuesday morning as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 130 miles per hour.

With maximum sustained winds of 75 miles (121 km) per hour and gusts of 93 miles (150 km) per hour, Bud was moving northwest at 9.3 miles (15 km) per hour.

The hurricane will churn up the ocean water along the Mexican coast, which could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, the hurricane center said.

The detectives who investigated the drug charges against McGowan have categorically rejected her ludicrous claim that Mr. Rose McGowan accidentally left her wallet on a United Airlines flight at Washington Dulles Airport past year .

The center said the hurricane's core still could generate unsafe heavy surf and rip currents over the coming days. That same climate pattern could also put a damper on the Atlantic hurricane season. Earlier Tuesday, it briefly strengthened to a Category 4 hurricane.

Instead of curving westward like Aletta, AccuWeather predicts Bud will head towards Baja California, passing over cooler waters and weakening into a tropical storm that will hit the region with showers and thunderstorms beginning Thursday and carrying on into the weekend.

A tropical storm watch remained in effect for portions of Mexico's west coast from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes. Middle Georgia is forecast to have either a very small chance of above average rainfall or near normal rainfall.

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.
