The National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Newton has framed off Mexico's Pacific drift and is made a beeline for Baja California.
Newton was situated around 460 miles (745 km) southeast of Cabo San Lucas early Monday morning. The tempest was moving north-northwest at 8 mph (13 kph) with most extreme managed winds of 40 mph (65 kph).
Forecasters anticipate that Newton will keep moving in the same general bearing with an expansion in forward rate Monday and Tuesday. The focal point of Newton is required to be close or over the southern tip of the Baja California landmass Tuesday morning, by which time it could be close storm power.
Beach front parts of five Mexican states could see 5 to 10 inches of downpour, with disengaged maximums of 15 inches.
