Tropical Storm Celia has formed in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico, though forecasters say it is expected to remain well offshore.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday morning that Celia is about 355 miles (575 kilometers) south-southeast of Acapulco, Mexico. Winds are reaching about 40 mph (65 kilometers per hour).

The depression is moving to the west-southwest at about 5 mph (7 kilometers per hour).

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Blas was still swirling 455 miles (735 kilometers) south of the southern tip of Baja California. Its winds were at about 65 mph (100 kilometers per hour), but forecasters say it will likely get weaker starting tonight.
