MIAMI, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Tropical Storm Juliette gained strength as it passed just offshore the west coast of Baja California, Mexico, Thursday, forecasters said.

Juliette was about 95 miles northwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, traveling northwest at 23 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said in its 2 a.m. EDT advisory.

Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour with higher gusts.

A tropical storm warning was issued by the Mexican government for the coast of Baja California from San Evaristo to Bahia Magdalena, including Cabo San Lucas.

Juliette was expected to show a reduction in forward speed over the next 24 hours as the storm turns toward the west-northwest, with an additional decrease in forward speed and some weakening Thursday night.

Rainfall of 1 to 3 inches could be expected along the southern part of Baja California.
