MIAMI (AP) - Tropical Storm Nate has formed in the Gulf of Mexico, and authorities have issued a tropical storm warning for parts of Mexico’s coast.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says Nate could become a hurricane by Friday. The storm was nearly stationary Wednesday night, moving east at about 2 mph (4 kph). Nate is expected to move very little Wednesday and Thursday, and then it will start to move north by Friday.

Nate’s maximum sustained winds were at 45 mph (72 kph) Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Maria was swirling in the western Atlantic. A tropical storm watch was issued for the Leeward Islands including Antigua and Montserrat.

Hurricane Katia also continued to blow as a Category 1 storm in the Atlantic and was not expected to hit land. However, it was pushing large swells to the U.S. East Coast and Bermuda.
