Tropical storm watches and warnings have been extended westward along Mexico's coast as Tropical Storm Frank churns in the Pacific.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Danielle is getting stronger far out over the Atlantic.

On Monday, Mexico extended a tropical storm warning from west of Tecpan de Galeana to Zihuatanejo. A tropical storm watch has been extended westward to Punta San Telmo.

Frank has maximum sustained winds near 60 mph  and is expected to become a hurricane by late Monday night.

The storm is located about 105 miles south-southwest of Puerto Escondido, Mexico, and is expected to move parallel along the southern coast through Tuesday.
