(FOX NEWS) – While attention has been focused on Hurricane Dorian as it ravages the Bahamas and menaces the Southeast coast of the U.S., another tropical system is threatening Mexico this week as hurricane season nears its peak.

The National Hurricane Center said Tuesday that a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico has become Tropical Storm Fernand, the sixth named storm of the season.

The system currently has sustained winds of 40 mph and is located about 160 east of La Pesca, Mexico and moving west at 7 mph.

A tropical storm warning has been issued in Mexico from Barra del Tordo to the Mouth of the Rio Grande River on the U.S. border with Texas. An NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the storm Tuesday afternoon to provide more information on the intensity.

“A motion toward the west-northwest is forecast tonight and Wednesday,” the NHC said.

“This motion could bring the center of Fernand near or over the coast of northeastern Mexico late Wednesday.”
