Category 3 Hurricane Bud heads north off Mexico

Hurricane Bud is seen in an infrared satellite image capture at 9:30 a.m. ET on June 12, 2018.

Bud formed close enough to southwestern Mexico to trigger a watch.

The center said the hurricane's core still could generate risky heavy surf and rip currents over the coming days.

The swell also will generate strong rip and side currents, creating hazardous conditions for swimmers and surfers.

The storm may bring 3 to 6 inches across much of the area, with some locations seeing up to 10 inches of rain through Thursday. The storm peaked on Friday as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 miles per hour (220 kph).
