DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 900 PM MDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Bud was
located near latitude 20.5 North, longitude 109.1 West. Bud is
moving toward the north-northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this
motion is expected to continue on Thursday. A faster northward
motion is expected to occur Thursday night and Friday. On the
forecast track, the center of Bud is expected to cross southern Baja
California Sur late on Thursday and move over the Gulf of California
on Friday. The weakening storm is expected to make a second
landfall over mainland Mexico by Friday night.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher
gusts. Although slow weakening is expected, Bud is forecast to
still be a tropical storm when it reaches southern Baja California
Sur. Bud is forecast to degenerate to a remnant low or dissipate
after it moves inland over mainland Mexico.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km)
from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning
area beginning Thursday afternoon.
RAINFALL: Bud is expected to produce additional rainfall amounts of
1 to 2 inches across much of southwestern Mexico through Thursday,
with isolated maximum amounts of 3 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 continue to affect portions of
the coast of southwestern Mexico, western mainland Mexico, and the
southern Baja California Peninsula during the next couple of days.
These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip
current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather
