MIAMI, July 1 (UPI) -- Tropical Storm Dalila was strengthening in the Pacific Ocean and moving away from the coast of Mexico, forecasters said Monday.

Dalila, with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph, was about 165 miles west-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, moving west-northwest at 7 mph, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said in its 2 p.m. PDT advisory.

Earlier tropical storm watches and warnings were discontinued by the Mexican government.

Dalila was expected to turn west with a decrease in forward speed over the next couple of days and could become a hurricane by Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extended up to 70 miles from the center.

Dalila was expected to produce between 1 and 3 inches of rain over coastal portions of the Mexican states of Michoacan, Colima and Jalisco, with localized totals of 5 inches.
