A tropical depression with 35 mile (55 kilometers) per hour winds formed today in the Pacific south of the Mexican resort of Manzanillo, the National Hurricane Center said. The system 450 miles off shore may intensify into a tropical storm later in the day as it moves west-northwest at 15 mph though it’s no threat to land, the Miami-based forecaster said in an 8 a.m. Pacific time advisory. Models show the storm may be a hurricane within three days.
