First Pacific hurricane of 2018 explodes to Category 4

NASA peers into the rainfall of Eastern Pacific' Tropical Storm Aletta

Forecasters believe Aletta will keep the worst conditions well offshore, which will limit the potential for any threats to land. Tropical Storm Aletta was last clocked with 60 miles per hour sustained wind speeds.

Aletta is the first hurricane in the eastern Pacific this season, which began formally on May 15 and will last until November 30.

Hurricane Aletta intensified on Friday to category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson scale, while located 815 km southwest of the port of Manzanillo in Colima state, Mexico's national weather service, National Meteorological Service (SMN), announced. It predicts the storm's intensity to peak late Friday, with maximum winds of 145 miles per hour, just about 10 miles per hour shy of Category 5 levels.

"The hurricane has less than a day to strengthen before the environment becomes less hospitable, with a notable increase in shear and decrease in water temperatures forecast this weekend", the National Hurricane Center said.

Also lurking in the Pacific Ocean to the northwest of Bud is Tropical Storm Aletta which is traveling deeper into the chilly Pacific waters as a weakening cyclone.

With the formation of Aletta, the hurricane season in the Eastern Pacific basin is off to an early start. It's happened seven other times since 1970, according to NOAA's historical hurricanes database.

Another disturbance is coming in right behind Aletta though.

When Tropical Depression Three-E becomes a tropical storm, it will earn the name Bud.
