With a look at the Tropics on June 10th, we're still looking quiet in the Atlantic Basin. Any waves out in the open waters don't look like it'll lead to any tropical activity over the next 5 days. Over in the Pacific, we're still watching two tropical cyclones. Tropical Storm Aletta is still holding onto tropical storm status with 45 mph sustained wind speeds. With it encountering a more stable environment going into this week, it'll weaken to a depression within the next 24 to 48 hours. Southeast of Aletta, Bud went from a Tropical Storm Saturday night into a Hurricane on this Sunday. With sustained wind speeds of 80 mph, it stands as a Category 1 Hurricane. As it moves northwest, it'll briefly encounter an environment for it to rapidly strengthen to a Category 3 Hurricane Monday evening. Beyond Monday evening, it'll maintain Hurricane status as it drifts northwest through Wednesday. By Thursday and Friday, Bud is expected to weaken to a Tropical Storm before impacting the Baja Peninsula.
