Cosme is centered about 335 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, and is moving northwest at 14 mph.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect.

The hurricane center says ocean swells generated by the storm will begin affecting a swath of the Pacific coast from Manzanillo to Cabo Corrientes later Monday night with life-threatening surf and rip currents possible.
