U.S. weather forecasters say a new tropical storm has formed over the Pacific.

Tropical Storm Jova is the 10th Pacific storm of the season.

The National Hurricane Center says the storm was centered about 800 kilometers southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico and could grow into a hurricane by Saturday. There are currently no watches or warnings issued for the coast.

Topical Storm Irwin is also churning in the Pacific. Late Thursday it was about 1,400 kilometers southwest of Baja, California and could also strengthen into a hurricane during the next few days.

In the Atlantic, Hurricane Phillipe, a category one storm, is expected to move out to sea, posing no immediate danger to land. Philippe was about 700 kilometers southeast of Bermuda.
