Hurricane Bud was strengthening off Mexico's Pacific coast on Thursday, threatening to hit land on Friday near the shipping port of Manzanillo.
Bud is now a Category 2 storm, with maximum sustained winds of 110 mph, it could become Category 3 which would make it a major hurricane soon.
Bud is expected to weaken before making landfall on Friday.
The storm was located about 225 miles southwest of Manzanillo, moving northeast at around 9 mph, the center said.
4 to 6 inches of rain is likely on the Mexican coastline.
Mexico's government has begun a hurricane watch along the coast from Punta San Telmo to Cabo Corrientes.
