There is a tropical depression that could strengthen to a hurricane while moving northwest toward the West Coast of Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said. By Monday, it's forecast to become a hurricane. Rapid weakening is then expected through the weekend.

Aletta was first named a hurricane on Thursday, June 7, which is over two weeks earlier than normal.

According to figures released in May, NOAA's Climate Prediction Center is expecting a near-normal or above-normal season in the Eastern Pacific basin. 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. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 through November 30, with peak activity from July through September. 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.
