Olivia was about 930 miles southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula with maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour and was moving west-northwest at 8 miles per hour, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said early Sunday.

Olivia is expected to make a northwest turn later Sunday.

Forecasters say it could become a hurricane sometime during the next day or two.

The eastern Pacific hurricane season ends Nov. 30.
