Hurricane Bud, which has strengthened to a Category 3 storm, is projected to target the western coast of Mexico in the coming days. A second system, Hurricane Bud, has since developed in the same region and is expected to send moist, humid air streaming into Southern California late this week. It was centred about 235 miles (380 kilometres) southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, and was moving northwest at 10 mph (17 kph).

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Bud had maximum sustained winds of 120 miles per hour Monday morning.

"Some strengthening is forecast today, and Bud could become a major hurricane later today", the NHC said. Rainfall of 3 to 6 inches, with isolated patches of 10 inches, was possible into Tuesday afternoon.

A tropical storm watch was issued by the government of Mexico for Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes, The Weather Channel reported.

The rain could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, forecasters said. Aletta surged from a tropical storm to a Category 4 hurricane late last week over the span of just 24 hours.

The swell also will generate strong rip and side currents, creating hazardous conditions for swimmers and surfers.
