Aletta is the first hurricane of the 2018 season in the eastern Pacific. Hurricane Aletta, which formed early Wednesday, achieved hurricane status on Thursday afternoon, after its sustained winds climbed to 120 km/h. Fortunately for Mexicans and travellers alike, the storm's track keeps it well offshore throughout its life cycle.
Aletta is the first hurricane of the Eastern Pacific hurricane season - and the first major hurricane.
Forecasters said Aletta is now a Category 3 hurricane. It was moving west-northwest at 6 miles per hour (9 kph). Infrared satellite images show the storm has a distinct, 20-mile wide eye, with deep convection.
Forecasters said the hurricane may gain more intensity before a combination of increased wind shear and decreasing ocean heat will cause Aletta to break down.
