MIAMI >> The first named tropical storm of the eastern Pacific hurricane season formed far from Mexico’s coast.

Tropical Storm Andres formed Thursday and has maximum sustained winds near 40 mph. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the storm could become a hurricane by late Friday, though it is not currently forecast to threaten land.

The storm will hit colder water by Tuesday and should start weakening.

The storm is centered about 690 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, and is moving west-northwest near 14 mph. It is expected to turn more toward the north this weekend.
