A second system, Hurricane Bud, has since developed in the same region and is expected to send moist, humid air streaming into Southern California late this week. The storm peaked on Friday as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 miles per hour (220 kph).

Bud has 120 miles per hour maximum sustained winds and was moving northwest at 7 miles per hour, the NHC said.

The hurricane is moving north-west at about 10mph - a course it is expected to take until mid-week, the NHC said.

While the storm may strengthen again today, it will likely begin weakening as early as tomorrow tomorrow. It is expected to bring rain to much of southwestern Mexico, with isolated amounts of 10 inches. "These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides", the agency warned.

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