Tropical Storm Andres Strengthens off SW Mexico

Andres is first storm of Eastern Pacific hurricane season

Tropical Storm Andres is getting stronger off the southwestern coast of Mexico early this morning. Forecasters say the coming days could see it become a hurricane.

A tropical storm watch has been issued along part of the Mexico coast, even though it is too soon to tell if the storm will make landfall.

Late last night, Andres became the first named storm of the Eastern Pacific hurricane season, which is typically busiest between July and September.

Forecasters say it's been 40 years since it took so long in the Eastern Pacific season to officially name a tropical storm.
