Category 3 Hurricane Bud will produce rain and wind on Pacific coast

At the bottom left is Hurricane Bud in the eastern Pacific. It was centered about 440 miles south-southeast of the tip of the Baja peninsula and was moving northwest at 7 mph.

The hurricane is moving north-west at about 10mph - a course it is expected to take until mid-week, the NHC said.

"On the forecast track, the core of Bud and its stronger winds are expected to remain well offshore of the southwestern coast of mainland Mexico".

Some additional strengthening is possible today but a slow weakening should begin tomorrow.
