Bud Weakens To A Remnant Low Along Mexican Coast
UPDATED 8 AM PDT, May 26, 2012
By WeatherBug Meteorologist, John Bateman
Bud has just about breathed its last breath as it now becomes a remnant low along the west coast of Mexico. Still another 1-2 inches of rain could fall in locations as the last of its moisture is squeezed out over the higher elevations of Mexico.

As of 8 a.m. PDT, what`s left of Bud was located at 20.6 N and 105.8 W, or about 15 miles south of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico. Its top sustained winds have decreased to 30 mph. Bud is creeping north at 3 mph. The minimum central pressure has risen to 1007 mb, or 29.74 inches of mercury.

Bud`s weakening has been due to dry air wrapping into the center`s circulation from the north and west today, while an increasingly unfavorable upper-level environment is also being counterproductive. In addition, the Mexican Coast is providing friction that is helping to tear Bud apart.

The 2012 Eastern Pacific Hurricane season marks the first time since 2007 that two named storms formed in the month of May. In 2007, Tropical Storm Alvin formed well out in the Eastern Pacific, staying away from Mexico. The other storm was Tropical Storm Barbara. Barbara took an unusual northeasterly track, coming ashore along the Mexico and Guatemala border on June 2.
