Category 3 Hurricane Bud threatens Mexico, Southwest U.S.

Doyle Rice, USA TODAY Published 11:48 a.m. ET June 11, 2018 | Updated 12:43 p.m. ET June 11, 2018

Hurricane Bud, now swirling off the west coast of Mexico as a Category 3 storm, is forecast to bring heavy rain to Mexico and possibly the Southwest U.S. over the next few days.

While rainfall from Bud or its remnants would be beneficial to the drought-stricken Southwest, it could also cause flash floods if too much falls too quickly, according to AccuWeather.

The worst drought in the U.S. is in the Southwest, with the most severe conditions in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado.

As of 11 a.m. ET, Bud had winds of 120 mph and was moving to the northwest at 7 mph. It was located about 475 miles south-southeast of the southern tip of the Baja peninsula in Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said. A tropical storm watch remained in effect for portions of Mexico's west coast from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes.

1. I'm just outside of Albuquerque

Hopefully we get some rain from this and soon. It's a horrible drought here and wildfires are starting to erupt in northern NM and Colorado

4. I'm fine with the risk of flash floods right now.

They closed the San Juan National Forest this morning.
