Tropical Storm Frank (09E) was upgraded to hurricane status, and has since strengthened a little more.

The system is located near 17.2N 107.5W, about 250 mi (405 km) south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes, Mexico, and about 425 mi (680 km) south-southeast of the southern tip of Baja California.

The system is presently moving west-northwest at 14 mph (22 km/hr), and this motion is expected to continue for the next day or so. A reduction in forward speed is likely to occur on Friday as Frank moves over cooler water.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the center, and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km).
