 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1200 PM MDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Bud was located near latitude 19.6 North, longitude 108.8 West.  Bud is moving toward the north-northwest near 5 mph (7 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue today.  Bud is forecast to accelerate northward on Thursday and continue that motion into Friday. On the forecast track, the center of Bud is expected to cross southern Baja California Sur late Thursday and move over the Gulf of California later on Friday.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 60 mph (90 km/h) with higher gusts.  Although additional weakening is expected during the next day or so, Bud is forecast to still be a tropical storm when it reaches southern Baja California Sur late Thursday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 994 mb (29.35 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning area by Thursday evening.
RAINFALL:  Bud is expected to produce additional rainfall of 1 to 2 inches across much of southwestern Mexico through Thursday, with isolated maximum amounts of 4 inches.  These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.
Bud is also expected to produce 1 to 3 inches of rain with isolated totals of 5 inches across southern portions of Baja California Sur and Sonora in northwestern Mexico through Saturday.
SURF:  Swells generated by Bud will affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico, western mainland Mexico, and the southern Baja California Peninsula during the next few days.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
