Aletta rapidly strengthens into a Category 4 hurricane

Strengthening rapidly overnight, the storm was rated Category 4 by Friday afternoon as it continued to churn in the waters off the west coast of Mexico.

During an average hurricane season we get 12 named storms, six that become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.

Future Bud is expected to quickly intensify over the warm Pacific waters in a similar manner to Aletta's development.

Some outer rainbands will likely push ashore, at times, through next week, possibly triggering local flash flooding if they persist in any area for a few hours at a time.

Centered just under 500 miles south of Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Aletta transformed from a tropical storm into a Category 4 hurricane in just 24 hours. Breaking waves and rip currents will be a threat along those beaches into at next week.

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. Rapid weakening is then expected through the weekend.

The season of Hurricane has just started in the Atlantic and the eastern Pacific Ocean, and it will be running through November 30th, 2018.

Early on June 6, Tropical Depression Two-E was upgraded to Tropical Storm Aletta.
