2018 E. Pacific Hurricane Season

Recommended Posts

With the first named storm, Aletta, now we have rapid intensification to a category 4 storm where nobody was expecting it.

The remarkable intensification of Aletta has continued through this
morning.  The eye has become clear and at times has been
surrounded by a closed ring of cloud tops colder than -70 deg C.
The initial intensity of 120 kt is based on a blend of subjective
and objective Dvorak estimates.  It is noteworthy that the
intensity of Aletta has increased by an estimated 60 kt in just 24
hours since yesterday morning.

Hurricane Bud peaked at 115 kt, as of the early-morning NHC discussion. Here is the satellite image that best represents Bud's maximum intensity (midnight, Pacific time)
