MIAMI » Another tropical storm, Priscilla, has formed in the eastern Pacific south of Tropical Storm Octave, which is approaching Mexico.

Priscilla's maximum sustained winds early Monday are near 40 mph with some strengthening expected.

Priscilla is centered about 705 miles southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California and is moving north-northeast near 12 mph.

Meanwhile, farther north, Tropical Storm Octave is maintaining its strength with maximum sustained winds near 65 mph. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm is expected to weaken and become a tropical depression Tuesday by the time it nears Baja California.

Octave is centered about 245 miles south-southwest of Cabo San Lazaro, Mexico, and is moving north-northwest near 14 mph.
