Two major category 5 hurricanes, Irma and Maria, ploughed through the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the USA west coast during 2017's extremely active Atlantic storm season, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. The hurricane center warned that this could cause flash floods and mudslides.
The center said the hurricane's core was moving farther from Mexico's southwestern coast but still could generate risky heavy surf and rip currents over the coming days.
If the system reaches tropical storm strength, it will be given the name Beryl.

An average Eastern Pacific hurricane season sees the first hurricane form by June 26, according to National Hurricane Center data from 1971 to 2009. In the image, city lights from coastal Mexico are visible to the east. However, the image also showed the eye was obscured by high clouds. That's about 235 miles (380 km) southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. The storm peaked on Friday as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 miles per hour.
Hurricane Bud, now swirling off the west coast of Mexico, is forecast to strengthen into a major hurricane and impact both Mexico and the Southwest U.S. over the next few days.
By mid-morning on Tuesday, Bud was moving towards the northwest at around 6 mph (9 km/h) and was around 325 miles (523 kilometers) south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas. The estimated minimum central pressure is 960 millibars.
Heavy rain is likely to become the main hazard from the storm over Baja California and Mexico's adjacent mainland coast.
