Hurricane Bud Weakens to Cat 3, Affecting Several Western Mexican States

MEXICO CITY Hurricane Bud lost strength on Tuesday to a Category 3 storm after strengthening overnight to Category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson scale but it continues to bring intense and at times torrential rains to several western Mexican states, the National Weather Service (SMN) reported.

At 10:00 am, Bud was located 360 kilometers (223 miles) west-southwest of Playa Perula, in Jalisco state, and 270 km east of Isla Socorro, moving northwest at 9 kph.

The SMN has designated a zone from Michoacan to Nayarit states as a hurricane watch area.

The storm is packing sustained winds of 205 kph and gusts of up to 250 kph as it moves over the Pacific.

Its cloud bands are forecast to bring torrential rain to the states of Jalisco, Colima, Michoacan and Nayarit, very intense rain to Durango and Sinaloa, strong rains at spots in Zacatecas, Guanajuato, Aguascalientes and Guerrero, as well as to Baja California Sur.

In addition, wind gusts of 60-80 kph and waves of between 3-5 meters (10-16 feet) are occurring along the coasts of Michoacan, Colima and Jalisco, with waves of 2-3 m along the coasts of Nayarit and Baja California Sur.

The official forecast for 7 pm is for Bud to be 370 km southwest of Cabo Corrientes as a Category 2 storm with sustained winds of 175 kph and gusts of up to 215 kph.
