Bud looks like he's blossoming. Aletta on the far left lost all it's convection, but in the last 6 hours blew back up.

Bud looks like a threat to Mexico.

Tropical Storm Bud Discussion Number 3
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP032018
400 AM CDT Sun Jun 10 2018

Bud's cloud pattern has continued to become better organized on
satellite imagery, with a developing CDO and banding features over
the southeastern portions of the circulation. The current
intensity is set at 45 kt in agreement with the latest Dvorak
estimate from TAFB. There is low shear over the storm and the ocean
waters are very warm. These environmental factors should continue
to prevail for the next few days and Bud will likely become a
hurricane within a day or so. The official intensity forecast is a
blend of the simple and corrected consensus numerical guidance. As
noted earlier there is a possibility of rapid intensification,
especially when Bud develops a well-defined inner core, and
subsequent NHC forecasts may need to be adjusted higher.
Beyond 72
hours, gradual weakening should begin as the cyclone approaches the
cold waters near the Baja California peninsula.

The motion continues northwestward and is estimated to be about
310/8 kt. Bud is being steered by the flow on the southwestern
periphery of a mid-level high that covers much of Mexico. In the
latter part of the forecast period, a gradual turn toward the
north-northwest is likely as Bud reaches the western portion of the
high. This track would keep the tropical cyclone offshore of
mainland Mexico but move it toward the southern portion of the Baja
California Peninsula later in the week. It should be noted that
there is significant uncertainty in 5-day position and intensity

Although Bud is forecast to remain well offshore the southwest coast
of Mexico, large swells should begin to affect that portion of
the coast during the next few days.

I got some Puerto Vallarta surf Cams. Tuesday- Thursday should be good.

Punta Sayulita is just north of Puerto Vallarta but the waves should be similar even with it tucked in.

Hurricane Bud Discussion Number 9
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL EP032018
300 PM MDT Mon Jun 11 2018

The organization of the cloud pattern has improved overall, but the
eye has been fluctuating between clear and obscure. An average of
TAFB/SAB subjective T-numbers and much higher objective values from
UW/CIMSS yield an initial intensity of 105 kt. Bud still has the
opportunity to gain some additional strength during the next 12
hours or so before the environmental conditions become less
conducive and the cyclone gradually encounters the cooler waters
near the Baja California peninsula in about 3 days. By then, Bud is
expected to be below hurricane strength. The official intensity
forecast is in between the Corrected Consensus HCCA model, which
weakens Bud fast, and the SHIPS guidance which shows a more gradual

Bud appears to be moving toward the northwest or 315 degrees at
about 6 kt. The steering pattern is well established while Bud
continues to be embedded within the flow around a subtropical
ridge centered over Mexico and the southwestern United States. Once
Bud reaches the southwestern edge of the ridge in about 24 to 36
hours, it should gradually turn north-northwestward and then
northward toward the Baja California peninsula. The NHC forecast is
not different from the previous one and is in the middle of
the guidance envelope. It is also a little to the west of the
HCCA corrected consensus and the FSSE, which are among the rightmost
of the models.

Really good news for parched southwest (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado).

This has the potential to signal the earliest start to the Arizona/southwest monsoon ever recorded. With massive fires already burning in New Mexico and Colorado, couldn't come soon enough!

Record Early Monsoon Start
