Tropical Storm Carlos has strengthened far off Mexico's Pacific coast on Friday and is expected to reach hurricane strength on Saturday as it moves farther out to sea.

The US National Hurricane Center in Miami says Carlos, which had been a depression, now has maximum sustained winds near 50 mph (85 kph) and was expected to continue moving west or west-northwest. At 8 pm PDT, the storm was about 925 miles (1,485 kilometers) south-southwest of the tip of the Baja California peninsula. It was moving west at about 14 mph (22 kph), out to sea.
