Hurricane Center monitoring storms over Caribbean Sea

Hurricane Bud is seen near Mexico's Pacific coast at 8:00 a.m. ET on Monday

Hurricane Bud is seen near Mexico's Pacific coast at 8:00 a.m. ET on Monday

"Even though Bud is now a powerful hurricane, it is going to pass over ocean waters of progressively decreasing heat content", the center said.

Intense storms have been forecast in states along Mexico's Pacific Ocean shoreline, including Michoacán, Jalisco, Colima and Guerrero. Rainfall of 3 to 6 inches, with isolated patches of 10 inches, was possible over much of that region into Tuesday afternoon.

Forecasters say Bud is expected to strengthen further before a slow weakening trend starts Tuesday.

Some of the wave energy will come from Tropical Storm Aletta, which reached hurricane strength off the west coast of Mexico last week.


"These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the NHC said. The storm peaked on Friday as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 miles per hour (220 kph).

An area of clouds, rain, and low pressure in the southern Caribbean Sea has a small chance of becoming a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next 5 days.

On top of Irma and Maria, powerful category 4 hurricane Harvey inflicted $125billion worth of damage, mostly from catastrophic flooding in Houston, Texas, between August and September previous year.

Up to nine hurricanes and four "major" depressions with sustained winds of at least 100mph have been predicted by U.S. government, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A near-normal season has three to five tropical cyclones, and an above-normal season has six or more tropical cyclones, according to the NOAA.
