The National Hurricane Center in Miami says maximum sustained winds late Tuesday are at 45 mph (72 kph). The center is about 845 miles (1360 kilometers) south-southwest of Mexico's Baja California peninsula, south of California. It could become a hurricane by Thursday.
There are no coastal warnings or watches.
It's moving at 15 mph (24 kph) and is expected to head farther out to sea on its current west-northwest track.
Meanwhile, what was once Tropical Storm Flossie's Hawaiian adventure was short, scattered and left little damage behind.
