Storm Brewing in the Pacific, Predicted to Become Hurricane

Hemera Technologies/Ablestock[dot]com(MIAMI) -- The first tropical depression of the season has formed in the Pacific Ocean and is forecast to become a tropical storm by Tuesday night or Wednesday.

"The good news is we expect the storm to move out to sea," said Dennis Feltgen of the National Hurricane Center, "and we do not see any landfall from this storm any time in its future."

On Tuesday, the system was 365 miles south of Acapulco, moving northwest and gaining strength.

It was predicted to become a hurricane by Friday.
