May 26, 2012 — Driving rain pelted Mexico's Pacific coast early Saturday -- but tropical storm Bud is said to be losing steam fast.

The storm should drop an additional 2-5 cm along the coast

Tropical depression Bud is losing power -- but people were still on high flood and mudslide alert Friday as strong winds and rain pummelled the southwestern coast of Mexico.

Tropical depression Bud, which was once a major hurricane, was packing winds sustained around 115 km/h -- but by Saturday, they had weakened significantly, clocking in at 48 km/h.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami has announced that Bud has "degenerated to a remnant low," and is expected to dissipate further, but not before dropping an additional 2 to 5 centimetres of rain along the coast.

In anticipation to the start of the Atlantic hurricane season, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced its 2012 predictions.
