MIAMI — Forecasters on Monday said that Tropical Storm Paula has formed near Honduras and is expected to become a full-blown hurricane by Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center said Monday afternoon that the storm has winds of 60 mph (95 kph) and is about 130 miles (210 kilometers) east-southeast of Isla Guanaja, Honduras.

The government of Mexico has issued a hurricane warning for the country's coast from Punta Gruesa north to Cancun, including Cozumel. The coast of Honduras is under a tropical storm warning.

Forecasters said the storm will produce heavy rains that could cause flash floods and mudslides especially in the mountains in Nicaragua and Honduras. Coastal flooding from heavy waves is also expected along the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and the Bay Islands of Honduras.
