Tropical Storm Kevin has formed in the eastern Pacific off Mexico's coast.

The storm's maximum sustained winds early yesterday were near 40 mph (65kph). The US National Hurricane Centre said Kevin is expected to remain a tropical storm through today.

Kevin is centred about 510 miles (825 kilometres) southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula and is moving north near 6mph (9kph).

Meanwhile, in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Fred has regained some strength. The storm's maximum sustained winds have increased to near 45 mph (75 kph). But the storm is still expected to weaken to a tropical depression by today.

Fred is centred about 690 miles (1,105 kilometres) west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands and is moving west-northwest near 8mph (13kph).
