  • Aletta becomes first hurricane of 2018 Pacific season

The US National Hurricane Center said Bud had maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour at midafternoon Sunday. By 9 am local time on Friday, and it had upgraded to category 4 storm with speed of 140 miles per hour winds.

The centre said Friday morning that swells generated by Aletta will begin to affect portions of mainland Mexico and the west coast of Baja California Sur later in the day.

AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski said: "Since this system will track over and through an environment very similar to what Aletta experienced, there's a good chance that it will become a hurricane".

During an average hurricane season we get 12 named storms, six that become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes. Breaking waves and rip currents will be a threat along those beaches into at next week. Rapid weakening is then expected through the weekend.

With the formation of Aletta, the hurricane season in the Eastern Pacific basin is off to an early start.

Also, Tropical Storm Bud formed Saturday night and is spinning off the Pacific coast of Mexico as a Category 1 storm. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 through November 30, with peak activity from July through September.

However, only one of these "A" hurricanes has reached Category 5 intensity, Hurricane Ava in June 1973, according to NOAA.
