First Pacific hurricane of 2018 explodes to Category 4

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

Aletta has rapidly intensified into the hemisphere's first major hurricane for 2018 as the storm hits maximum sustained winds of up to 140 miles per hour, The Weather Channel reported.

There's a low chance there will be tropical storm-force winds at some locations along the coast of Mexico through Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said. Strengthening rapidly overnight, the storm was rated Category 4 by Friday afternoon as it continued to churn in the waters off the west coast of Mexico.

If it becomes a tropical storm, it will be named Bud.

People who get caught in a rip current are advised to swim parallel to shore until free of its influence.

Infrared satellite imagery now shows that Aletta continues to lose organization and has become less symmetric.

The average date when the first named storm forms in the Eastern Pacific Basin is June 10, according to NHC data from 1971 to 2009.

It's not unusual for the Eastern Pacific season's first storm to be a Category 4 hurricane.

The season of Hurricane has just started in the Atlantic and the eastern Pacific Ocean, and it will be running through November 30th, 2018.

Disturbed weather has now been identified in the southeast of Acapulco on Friday and is expected to turn into a tropical system over the weekend and early next week.
