Tropical Storm Alex is gaining strength and a hurricane watch has been issued for the coasts of south Texas and northeastern Mexico.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Alex is expected to become a hurricane Tuesday. It's center is on a track from Yucatan headed for the Texas-Mexico border and away from the oil spill area off Louisiana.

A hurricane watch means that hurricane conditions are possible within 48 hours.

Forecasters say maximum sustained winds Monday morning were near 60 mph (95 kph).

Tropical storm force winds extend up to 70 miles (110 kilometers) from the storm's center. It is moving north-northwest near 7 mph (11 kph).
