  • Hurricane Bud strengthens off Mexico's Pacific coast

"Significantly cooler waters around the southern tip of Baja California should reduce Bud's intensity below hurricane status before it reaches that land", the center said.

Forecasters said the hurricane's eyewall, which contains its strongest winds, will remain far off the southwest Mexican coast but outer rainbands will continue to wrap ashore over southwest Mexico over the next few days.

Through Thursday, the storm is expected to dump rainfall of 3 to 6 inches (8-15 cm) across much of southwestern Mexico, with up to 10 inches in some areas. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.

Torrential downpours could cause "life-threatening" flash floods, mudslides and waves along coastal areas in Mexico, the NHC said.

Savannah drew attention at Trooping the Colour after putting her hand over little George's mouth as he sang the National Anthem. The cute moment was picked up on by her mother Kate , who looked over her shoulder and smiled knowingly at Prince William .

The Miami-based U.S. National Hurricane Center said Bud would then start to weaken by late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

Heavy rain is likely to become the main hazard from the storm over Baja California and Mexico's adjacent mainland coast. An average Eastern Pacific hurricane season sees the first hurricane form by June 26.

The National Hurricane Center Monday evening (June 11) continued to monitor a disturbance in the western Caribbean expected to move into the Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week.

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. A near-normal season has three to five tropical cyclones, and an above-normal season has six or more tropical cyclones, according to the NOAA.
