Intensifying quite quickly. Due to be a TS once it hits Baja but still could be quite nasty.

Is that a very tight eye or is it missing one altogether?

At 9:14 a.m. EDT (1314 UTC) on June 11, NOAA's GOES-West satellite captured an infrared image of Bud. The image showed a well-formed storm with powerful thunderstorms tightly circling the center. However, the image also showed the eye was obscured by high clouds.

That's the NASA report from earlier so is an interesting answer for Buds eye looking a bit strange. I don't remember seeing that visual or hearing of higher cloud obscuring before so that's a new one for me, good to know though.
