 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1200 AM MDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Bud was located near latitude 20.9 North, longitude 109.3 West.  Bud is moving toward the north-northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue on Thursday.  A faster northward motion should occur Thursday night and Friday. On the forecast track, the center of Bud is expected to cross southern Baja California Sur late on Thursday and move over the Gulf of California on Friday.  The weakening storm is expected to make a second landfall over mainland Mexico by Friday night.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.  Although slow weakening is expected, Bud is forecast to still be a tropical storm when it reaches southern Baja California Sur.  Bud is forecast to degenerate to a remnant low or dissipate after it moves inland over mainland Mexico.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning area beginning Thursday afternoon.
RAINFALL:  Bud is expected to produce additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches across much of southwestern Mexico through Thursday, with isolated maximum amounts of 3 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 continue to affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico, western mainland Mexico, and the southern Baja California Peninsula during the next couple of days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
