Hurricane Hilary formed in the Pacific Ocean off Mexico on Monday, but forecasters said the storm did not pose any imminent threat to land.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Hilary's center was located about 340 miles south of Manzanillo and was moving to the west-northwest at 8 mph (13 kph), roughly parallel to the coast.

The Category 1 storm had maximum sustained winds of 80 mph. It was expected to become a major hurricane Tuesday and move farther out to sea.

Two tropical storms, Greg and Irwin, were even farther out in the Pacific and also posed no immediate threat to land.

No coastal watches or warnings were issued.
