Miami (AP) Tropical storm Dolly is moving over Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and headed for the gulf of Mexico, where it could become a hurricane tomorrow.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Dolly currently has top sustained winds near 50 miles-per-hour.

A tropical storm warning is up for the Yucatan peninsula.

Dolly is expected to produce about 4 to 6 inches of rain across the northern Yucatan peninsula and in Western Cuba.

Meantime, Hurricane Fausto has increased to a category 2 storm in the pacific with maximum sustained winds near 100 miles-per-hour. Fausto is west-southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The hurricane center says the storm has probably reached its peak intensity and is expected to weaken during the next 24 hours.
