Hurricane Bud grew to Category 3 force off Mexico's Pacific coast on Monday, but forecasters said it was likely to weaken before a possible brush with the resort-dotted southern tip of the Baja California peninsula late in the week. It's moving northwest at 10 miles per hour.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Bud has maximum sustained winds of 115 miles per hour (185 kph).

"Some strengthening is forecast today, and Bud could become a major hurricane later today", the NHC said.

A tropical storm watch was issued by the government of Mexico for Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes, The Weather Channel reported.

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

Some 3 to 6 inches of rain accumulations are expected in much of southwestern Mexico, with isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches, the NHC said in the advisory.

"Swells generated by Bud will continue to affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico during the next few days", the NHC said.

"Significantly cooler waters around the southern tip of Baja California should reduce Bud's intensity below hurricane status before it reaches that land", the centre said. Aletta surged from a tropical storm to a Category 4 hurricane late last week over the span of just 24 hours.
