Monday, June 30, 2014, 10:08 - Tropical Storm Douglas, the fourth named storm of the eastern Pacific hurricane season, is spinning off Mexico's Pacific coast.

Douglas is expected to track in a west-northwesterly direction over the next couple of days, but poses no direct threat to land.

"Douglas is already moving over cooler ocean water, which should put a cap on its strengthening," says weather.com. "However, a lack of wind shear may allow Douglas to strengthen a bit through Tuesday or Wednesday, before a slow weakening takes Douglas to a remnant low late this week."

There are currently no coastal watches or warnings in places.

Tropical threat in the Atlantic

Meanwhile, a tropical depression may form in the next couple of days off the Florida coast.

"A tropical depression is likely to form by mid-week while the system moves slowly southwestward and then turns northward and northeastward near the southeastern United States coast," said the U.S. National Hurricane Center.
