 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Bud was located near latitude 13.4 North, longitude 102.6 West.  Bud is moving toward the northwest near 9 mph (15 km/h) and this general motion with some slowing of forward speed is expected through Tuesday.  This track will keep the core of Bud well off the southwestern coast of mainland Mexico.
Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.  Strengthening is forecast, and Bud is expected to become a hurricane late tonight or early Monday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- SURF:  Swells generated by Bud will begin to affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next 2 to 3 days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
