Just hours ago, Hurricane Amanda sent weather forecasters scrambling as it unexpectedly restrengthened far off Mexico's Pacific coast.

Weather experts continued to assure the storm does not pose a threat to land. It is likewise not expected to reach North America because the storm will head into stronger wind shear and cooler water.


However, northern Mexico and the southwest U.S. could receive some moisture and enhanced thunderstorm activity later in the week, respectively, from the storm.


The Mexican states of Jalisco, Michoacán, Colima and Nayarit could experience very heavy rainfall, BNamerica said.

Hurricane Amanda kicked off what is expected to become a busy hurricane season in the eastern Pacific. Meteorologists from AccuWeather.com said above-normal tropical activity could be expected in the eastern Pacific this season.


Possible tropical development will likewise be monitored in the western Caribbean in May and during early June, AccuWeather said.


"The western part of the Caribbean Sea is a favored area for early season tropical activity in the Atlantic basin and there is a chance a non-tropical system dips southward in this area late in the month, which could allow for some development," AccuWeather.com Tropical Weather Expert Dan Kottlowski said.


Hurricane Amanda is centred about 620 miles (995 kilometres) south-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula and is moving north-northwest near 5 mph (7 kph).
