 WATCHES AND WARNINGS -------------------- The Government of Mexico has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the southwestern coast of Mexico from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes. A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, in this case within the next 24 through 48 hours.
For storm information specific to your area, please monitor products issued by your national meteorological service.
 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Bud was located near latitude 15.3 North, longitude 104.2 West. Bud is moving toward the northwest near 9 mph (15 km/h), and this general motion with a gradual decrease in forward speed is expected through Tuesday. This track will keep the core of Bud and its stronger winds well off the southwestern coast of mainland Mexico.
Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts.  Bud could strengthen rapidly during the next 24 hours or so.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 145 miles (230 km).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 987 mb (29.15 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Bud is expected to produce rainfall accumulations of 3 to 6 inches, with isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches into Tuesday afternoon. These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides in higher terrain.
SURF:  Swells generated by Bud will 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.
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area beginning Monday afternoon.
 NEXT ADVISORY ------------- Next intermediate advisory at 700 PM CDT. Next complete advisory at 1000 PM CDT.
