A hurricane watch is in effect north of Cabo Rojo to La Pesca. A tropical storm warning is in effect from Coatzacoalcos to Cabo Rojo.

Off Mexico’s Pacific coast, Tropical Storm Manuel has maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. It’s 150 miles off Lazaro Cardenas and 255 miles south-southeast of Manzanillo. A tropical storm warning is in effect from Acapulco to Manzanillo.
