Tropical Storm Andres Launches Pacific Hurricane Season
(6:24 p.m. EDT) -- The first tropical storm of the Pacific Hurricane Season continues to make headway off the southwestern coast of Mexico.

Tropical Storm Andres has reached wind speeds of 60 miles per hour and is expected to strengthen -- with the possibility of becoming a hurricane as soon as tomorrow.

At 2:00 p.m. EDT, the National Hurricane Center said Andres was located about 125 miles south of Lazaro Cardenas and 230 miles south-southeast of Manzanillo. A tropical storm warning and a hurricane watch are in place for both locations.

Weather Outlook: Next Affected Ships & Ports

The NHC is forecasting that Andres will pass near the southwestern coast of Mexico on Tuesday. There are two ships scheduled to be in the area over the next few days:

Carnival Cruise Lines: Carnival Splendor is scheduled to visit Puerto Vallarta on Wednesday, June 24; Mazatlan on Thursday, June 25; and Cabo San Lucas on Friday, June 26.

Royal Caribbean: Mariner of the Seas is set to visit Cabo San Lucas on Tuesday, June 23; Mazatlan on Wednesday, June 24; and Puerto Vallarta on Thursday, June 25.

No itinerary changes have been announced by either line, but both are closely monitoring the situation. Stay tuned.
