Early this Tuesday a second tropical storm started to develop in Eastern Pacific Basin. Tropical Storm BUD is currently located about 804 km (500 miles) to the south of Acapulco, Mexico.  According to National Hurricane Center (NHC) it is located at 11.1°N 104.0°W with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.

The storm is expected to slowly track towards the north-northwest, generally paralleling the Mexican coastline, before picking up forward speed. It will start to encounter light upper-level winds as well as very warm waters which is important for the development of tropical systems.

By the end of the week it could develop into the first hurricane of the Eastern Pacific tropical season. If conditions continue to remain favorable for maintaining tropical characteristics, the storm could very well make landfall as a hurricane in central Mexico as early as Friday.
