Tropical Storm Harvey is strengthening off the coast of Honduras as the Atlantic storm threatens to bring high winds and several inches of rain to Central America.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday that Harvey was located about 35 miles (56 kilometers) east of Roatan, moving west at about 12 mph (19 kph). Maximum sustained winds were 60 mph (97 kph).

Showers and thunderstorms have increased overnight.

Tropical storm warnings were issued for the northern coast of Honduras from Punta Patuca westward, the Bay Islands of Honduras, and coastal Belize and Guatemala. A warning for the Yucatan Peninsula was canceled.

Hurricane conditions were expected along part of the Belize coast later Saturday. The system is not expected to impact the Texas coast.
