MIAMI (AP) - Tropical Storm Georgette has formed in the Pacific off the coast of Baja California in Mexico.

A tropical storm warning was issued Tuesday for southern Baja California.

The storm has maximum sustained winds near 40 mph (65 kph), but weakening is expected once Georgette moves inland over the peninsula later in the day.

The storm is located about 60 miles (100 kilometers) south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and is moving north-northwest near 9 mph (15 kph).
