Mexico: West Coast: Tropical Storm Carlos

 Tropical Storm Carlos is sitting stationary over the Pacific Ocean south of Mexico, but is expected to start moving slowly soon.

As of Friday morning, it had maximum sustained winds at 60 mph (95 kph) and was centered about 160 miles (260 kilometers) south of Acapulco, Mexico, and about 215 miles (345 kilometers) south-southeast of Zihuatanejo, Mexico. The storm was remaining stationary Friday morning.

 But the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says Carlos is expected to start moving slowly later Friday and into Saturday. Forecasters say Carlos is expected to become a hurricane over the weekend. Heavy rains and swells are expected.

 A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect from Acapulco to Zihuatanejo.
