Aletta Becomes a Major Hurricane In The Pacific

Tropical Storm Bud was building toward hurricane strength in the Pacific Ocean west of Mexico on Sunday even as former Hurricane Aletta was fading. There is no threat to land.

Aletta, the first named storm of the season, rapidly intensified Thursday night, becoming not only a hurricane but a powerhouse Category 4 Friday morning. Some additional strengthening is possible through Saturday.

Accuweather has predicted the hurricane will track west-northwest away from the Mexico coastline into the weekend.

NASA peers into the rainfall of Eastern Pacific' Tropical Storm Aletta

Tropical Storm Aletta is spinning more than 440 miles off the southwestern coast of Mexico and using satellite data, NASA peered into the storm to uncover where the heaviest rain was falling. By Monday, it's forecast to become a hurricane. Aletta should strengthen over the next couple days before weakening back to a tropical storm midday Sunday and a tropical depression midday Tuesday.

Meanwhile, forecasters are also keeping an eye on a broad area of low pressure a few hundred kilometers (miles) southwest of Guatemala. This disturbance is now a cluster of storms, but is becoming better organized. It grew from a Tropical Storm to a Category 3 hurricane within 24 hours.

The east Pacific hurricane season, which starts on May 15 each year, has its first official hurricane.
