With maximum sustained winds of some 125 miles per hour (201 kilometers per hour), Bud was barreling towards the popular beach resorts of Los Cabos on the southernmost tip of the Baja California peninsula, the Miami-based NHC said.

Aletta is centered just over 500 miles south-southwest of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.

The latest public forecast showed Bud moving in a northwestern direction at around 7 miles per hour.

"These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides", the NHC said.

The center said the hurricane's core still could generate unsafe heavy surf and rip currents over the coming days.

Though forecasters said that "environmental conditions could became slightly conducive for some development" towards the end of the week, the system is now only at a 10 percent chance of forming into a cyclone in the next two days and 20 percent in the next five days. An average Eastern Pacific hurricane season sees the first hurricane form by June 26.

Hurricane Aletta rapidly intensified to Category 4 intensity, but is quickly weakening.

Hurricane Bud has strengthened to a category 4 hurricane off the Mexican coast as of Tuesday as it churns out over the open waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean.

The Weather Channel said predicted it would be a tropical storm when it arrives in Baja California Sur.

At least some peripheral impacts are possible near the coast from future Bud, even if the center remains offshore.

Forecasters for AccuWeather and Global Weather Cycles and Oscillations told Daily Star Online they are both predicting an above-average season - the third in a row.
