At 11:00 PM PDT (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Andres was located about 160 miles (260 km) southeast of Manzanillo, Mexico.
Andres is moving toward the northwest near 8 mph (13 kph); this general motion is expected to continue for the next 24 to 36 hours with a slight increase in forward speed.
On the forecast track, Andres should pass very close to, or over, the southwestern coast of Mexico within the warning area on Tuesday. The same day, Andres is also forecast to become a hurricane.
Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 kph) with higher gusts. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center. Estimated minimum central pressure is 994 mb (29.35 inches).
A hurricane warning remains in effect for the southwestern coast of Mexico from Punto San Telmo to Cabo Corrientes, meaning that hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 24 hours.
Also, a tropical storm warning and a hurricane watch remain in effect for the southwestern coast of Mexico from Lazaro Cardenas to Punto San Telmo.
Andres is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 4 to 8 inches over portions of west-central Mexico with possible isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches. Coastal storm surge flooding of 1 to 3 feet above normal tide levels, along with large and dangerous battering waves, are possible in the warning area.
