Tropical Depression Seven has strengthened into Storm Fernand in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday.

Fernand, the sixth named storm in the Atlantic, is located about 185 miles (295 kilometers) east north-east of Tampico, Mexico, packing maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 km per hour).

"A motion toward the west-northwest is forecast tonight and Wednesday. This motion could bring the center of Fernand near or over the coast of northeastern Mexico late Wednesday," the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
