MIAMI (AP) — A tropical depression is nearing southern Mexico's Pacific coast, where it's forecast to bring torrential rains.

The depression's maximum sustained winds early Tuesday are near 35 mph (55 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the depression could become a tropical storm later in the day.

A tropical storm warning is in effect in southern Mexico from Salina Cruz to Mexico's border with Guatemala.

The depression is centered about 140 miles (220 kilometers) south-southeast of Salina Cruz and has become nearly stationary in the last few hours. But it's expected to resume a slow northward motion later in the day.
