 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 900 PM MDT (0300 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Bud was located near latitude 17.6 North, longitude 107.6 West.  Bud is moving toward the northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h), and a decrease in forward speed is expected tonight and on Tuesday.  A slow north-northwestward motion is forecast late Tuesday through Thursday.  On the forecast track, the center of Bud will approach southern Baja California Sur on Thursday.
Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 125 mph (205 km/h) with higher gusts.  Bud is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir- Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.  Fluctuations in intensity are possible during the next 12 hours, but weakening is expected to begin on Tuesday and continue through Thursday while Bud approaches southern Baja California Sur.  Bud is forecast to weaken below hurricane intensity by Wednesday night.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 951 mb (28.09 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Bud is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches across much of southwestern Mexico, with isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches into Tuesday afternoon.  These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.
SURF:  Swells generated by Bud will continue to affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next few days and will begin to affect the southern Baja California Peninsula on Tuesday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
