DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 900 AM MDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Bud was
located near latitude 19.4 North, longitude 108.8 West. Bud is
moving toward the north-northwest near 3 mph (6 km/h) and this
general motion is expected to continue today. Bud is forecast to
accelerate northward on Thursday and continue that motion into
Friday. On the forecast track, the center of Bud will cross southern
Baja California Sur late Thursday and move over the Gulf of
California later on Friday.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 65 mph (100 km/h)
with higher gusts. Although additional weakening is expected during
the next day or so, Bud is forecast to still be a tropical storm
when it reaches southern Baja California Sur late Thursday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km)
from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 992 mb (29.30 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning
area by Thursday evening.
RAINFALL: Bud is expected to produce additional rainfall of 1 to 2
inches across much of southwestern Mexico through Thursday, with
isolated maximum amounts of 4 inches. These rains could cause
life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.
Bud is also expected to produce 1 to 3 inches of rain with isolated
totals of 5 inches across southern portions of Baja California Sur
and Sonora in northwestern Mexico through Saturday.
SURF: Swells generated by Bud will affect portions of the coast of
southwestern Mexico, western mainland Mexico, and the southern Baja
California Peninsula during the next few days. These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
