MIAMI (AP) -- Two storms are churning in the Eastern Pacific but one is producing swells that may cause life-threatening conditions.

Blanca, the second named storm of the season, was centered about 350 miles (560 kilometers) south-southwest of Zihuatanejo, Mexico, Monday evening. It has maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (85 kph).

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says no coastal warnings or watches are in effect, but the storm is expected to gain strength and become a major hurricane by late Wednesday. Forecasters call it a slow-moving storm.

Hurricane Andres continued to weaken Monday night but swells generated by the storm are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip conditions of the west coast of the Baja California peninsula. It is about 865 miles (1,390 kilometers) southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. It is moving west-northwest at 8 mph (13 kph) with maximum sustained winds of 115 mph (185 kph). Andres is expected to become a tropical storm by Wednesday. No warnings or watches are in effect.
