MIAMI (AP) — Forecasters say Tropical Storm Adrian has formed far out in the Eastern Pacific, making it the first named storm of the 2011 hurricane season.
No coastal watches or warnings have been issued. Maximum winds around the center of the storm late Tuesday were about 45 mph (72 kph). Forecasters say the storm is likely to strengthen.
The center of the storm is about 355 miles (571 kilometers) south of Acapulco, Mexico. It is barely moving west-northwest direction. That is expected to continue for the next couple of days.
