Tropical Storm Hermine has formed in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Texas.

A new tropical storm warning has been issued early Monday for the south Texas coast from the mouth of the Rio Grande to Baffin Bay. A tropical storm warning was already in effect for the coast of Mexico from Tampico to the mouth of the Rio Grande.

Hermine's maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 kph) with some additional strengthening expected before the storm makes landfall.

Heavy rain is predicted with northeastern Mexico into south Texas getting 4 to 8 inches with as much as a foot in some places. It could cause flash floods and mudslides.

The storm is located about 235 miles (375 kilometers) southeast of La Pesca, Mexico, and is moving north near 8 mph (13 kph).

The government of Mexico has issued a tropical storm warning for the coast of Mexico from Tampico to the mouth of the Rio Grande.
