MIAMI (AP) - Tropical Storm Fausto has formed over the Pacific Ocean far from Mexico’s coast and forecasters say it poses no immediate threat to land.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Monday afternoon that Fausto has formed about 1,145 miles (1,840 kilometers) southwest of the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. The center says Fausto is moving toward the west near 13 mph (20 kph) and has maximum sustained winds of about 40 mph (65 kph) with higher gusts.

Forecasters say the storm should gradual strengthen in the coming 48 hours and take a turn toward the west-northwest starting Wednesday.

There are no coastal watches or warnings currently in effect.
