MIAMI (AP) - Tropical Storm Alvin, the first named storm of the east Pacific hurricane season is gradually strengthening off the coast of Mexico.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Alvin's maximum sustained winds were last tracked at near 50 mph. The storm, which currently isn't a threat to land, could become a hurricane in the next day or two.
Alvin was centered about 705 miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, and moving west-northwest near 10 mph on a path that's expected to take it farther out to sea.
The eastern and north Pacific hurricane season began Wednesday and runs through Nov. 30.
