Genevieve, a Category 2 hurricane, could continue to gain strength Tuesday to become a major hurricane off the coast of Mexico, but is not expected to make landfall.
A tropical storm watch was issued for parts of the Baja California Peninsula on Monday, and forecasters point out that the meteor could pass southwest of that area Wednesday night or Thursday.
Genevieve had maximum sustained winds of 155 kilometers per hour (100 miles per hour) and was moving west-northwest at 28 km / h (17 mph), according to the US National Hurricane Survey. The meteor was about 330 kilometers (205 miles) south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico.
Genevieve is forecast to become a powerful hurricane on Tuesday.
