The west coast of Baja California Sur will be affected with high swells and rip currents this weekend. This rise in the storm has been a swift one, and it had become the tropical storm on Wednesday, and it has puttered throughout the day.

Aletta is not expected to directly impact any significant landmasses; however, the storm can still produce rough surf along the southern coast of Mexico and the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula.

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

"All residents and interests in this area should continue to closely monitor the progress of this evolving system".
