Roswell Gets Rain & Watching Hurricane Bud.

At 3 PM MDT newly formed Hurricane Bud was located at 15.3º N and 104.2º W or 255 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico. Bud had sustained winds of 75 mph with higher gusts and his central pressure was 987 millibars/29.15 inches of mercury. Bud was moving to the northwest at 9 mph and his forward speed is forecast to slow down over the next 24 hours as he undergoes rapid intensification.

Above normal sea surface temperatures in the Eastern Pacific Ocean are a factor in the development of two Hurricanes back to back recently (Aletta and today - Bud). All indicators point to a northerly track of Hurricane Bud over the next week. There is some hope that the remnant moisture from Bud may work its way northward into Arizona and New Mexico by next weekend and the first of next week. Maybe, we can hope. A lot may change between now and then but it now appears that at least Bud's remnant moisture may at the very least help to jump start our annual summer Monsoon. More later.
